Open Mic Reading to Celebrate Journal Publications

On the fateful evening of October 3, 2008, MWSU and community writers gathered in Spratt Recital Hall to celebrate the publication of The Mochila Review and Canvas, which were published last May. Faculty members Dana Andrews and Meg Thompson, who lead "The Writer's Circle," joined with Mochila editor and Canvas advisor Bill Church to sponsor the event.
MWSU students Allie Faulkner (2008 Canvas editor), Mary Stone, Casey Nichols, and Jay Claywell, Logal Garrels were joined by alumni and community members Jeremy Lyons, Brooke Kuykendall, Whitney Gates, Barry Claywell, and Larry Christy.

The 2008 Canvas, funded by the MWSU Foundation, is available free to students at Eder 222. This year's staff, led by editor Katy Strasser, is accepting submissions of prose, poetry, and pics for the 2008 edition. Students, alumni staff, and faculty may submit either in print form to Eder 222 or online via the EFLJ Homepage under the "Publications" link. For more info, contact kstrasser@missouriwestern.edu.
