Green River Community College
Calling all Artists and Poets!

Espial:  Taking notice of something; a discovery.

Espial is an award-winning literary and art journal completely produced and published by Green River College students. The journal will feature a special section of art and poetry from the Auburn community in addition to the work of students, faculty, staff and alumni, in order to foster creative dialogue.  We are looking for artist and poet partnerships to create new work specifically for the journal that addresses a sense of place, or encourages dialogue between the college and the community at large.  So, find a creative partner and get to work!   Select collaborations will be professionally published in the journal, featured on public exhibition and presented during the public book release/poetry reading and art event June 2nd, 2016.  There are no restrictions as to media, provided it can be adequately reproduced as text and a digital image in the book. Deadline to submit is 5:00 PM on March 17, 2016. Email for more information and a submission form, like us on Facebook or visit Espial websitelinks to external site
