Volume 2 of Spilled Ink, Jackson State's very own art and literature journal, was officially released on Wednesday, April 11. At the release party, sponsored by the JSCC Creative Writing Club, all contributors present were invited to read and/or discuss their work before an attentive and enthusiastic audience.
"Spilled Ink represents the entire Jackson State community," said faculty co-sponsor Dr. Ryan Guth. "We accept submissions from faculty, from staff, from alumni, and of course from current students. And not just folks at our main campus. This year's edition features several poems that came to us from our Lexington students, and we're trying to get the word out to all of our campuses."
Literature submissions are accepted year-round, and are first featured on the Spilled Ink web page. Members of the JSCC Creative Writing Club serve as editors for the journal selecting submissions, working with authors on revisions, determining the sequence and layout of pages.
"We also work with the Art Club on the contest for each year's cover image," Dr. Guth explained. "All artwork submitted for the contest is automatically considered for publication in the print journal as well."
