Hispaniola, ACU’s Spanish journal, is looking for new student participants.
Hispaniola is an opportunity for Spanish-speaking or learning students to become published authors.
All students who are fluent or are learning the language of Spanish are invited to submit their literary works of art to be reviewed and published.
Dr. Beatriz Walker, professor of Spanish and literature, editor of Hispaniola and advisor to Sigma Delta Pi, said, “It’s been really fun for me to see how students get really creative with the language.” Walker continues to inspire students involved and pushes them to evolve their talent and creativity.
Hispaniola is sponsored by Sigma Delta Pi, a national collegiate Hispanic honor society, as one of its academic services to ACU, with its Omega chapter here as well. For its services to campus, including Hispaniola, it has gained six national awards.
Hispaniola started in 2015 and has been successful since its introduction, expanding from 50 pages in its first edition to 100 in its last few.
“It makes me happy to know that what I’m teaching is working,” Walker said.
Students are invited to submit poetry, essays, short stories, and articles of interest. In addition, Hispaniola accepts photos that students have taken overseas or on vacation to Spanish-speaking nations.
Submissions must be original and comply with ACU standards.
The department of Language and Literature collaborates with SGA in order to produce publications, producing 100 copies of the journal each spring.
