Literary Journal Launch 2014

Dr. Bill Church welcomes the crowd to the publications launch
The 2014 editions of Canvas and Mochila are ready for prime time! The staff of the two journals met in the Junior College Room in Blum Student Union to launch the new editions and read some of the work that made it into print.

Mochila is now an online journal that features the work from undergraduates nation-wide. Thanks to the efforts of Candice Prussman, the site is up and running. Mochila's managing editor is graduating senior Katie Walkup. Her staff includes Roxanne Chase, Jihyun Lee, Lindsey Lucas, and Crystal Crawford.

Dr. Bill Church steps down as faculty adviser to the journals this year. We thank Bill for working with students over the years to develop two very fine publications. Dr. Marianne Kunkel will join us in the fall to teach creative writing (poetry) and the publications courses. Bill will continue to teach creative writing (prose).

Starting this fall we will offer a new emphasis area in our BA, English in creative writing and publishing.
