Students writing and art was published in the 25th edition of Tarleton State University’s Anthology. The book’s description says it is “A student forum for prose, poetry, and visual arts published by Tarleton State University.” The book release was celebrated with a reading of selected excerpts, read by the students who wrote them, along with a reception. Dr. Marilyn Robitaille and Benedda Konvicka were the advisors for the project.
Nick Ramirez, a co-editor for Anthology, said he enjoyed editing the book.
“Working on the Anthology was amazing. The staff works well together and it’s great being able to see the work that students produce,” Ramirez said.
Students submitted their work for the publication and editors rated each submission. Names were removed to ensure fairness.
“We read through the stories and poems and rated them. Each week we met once a week to discuss the stories and voted on each piece,” Ramirez said. “The stories that made it the second round were edited by the staff and included in the publication.”
Ramirez is proud of the final product.
“I thought the book turned out great,” he said. “Each member of the team was an integral part of choosing the design, layout and color scheme. Overall, I love it.”
Copies of Anthology can be found in the library and the artwork can be found in a gallery linked on the Tarleton website.
