Poetries, stories and art by 18 Fort Hays State University students, staff and alumni are featured in the 2008 edition of the student literary and arts journal, "Lines from the Middle of Nowhere."
The journal is available in the Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art in Rarick Hall and in the Department of English, also in Rarick Hall, third floor.
"This journal provides a showcase for the best of the creative and literary arts at FHSU," said Catherine "Katie" Edwards, Hays senior, editor for the 2008 edition. "I am proud to have played a part in the production of 'Lines.'"
Cameron Bashaw, Overland Park senior served as assistant editor. She will be the editor for the 2009 edition.
All submissions are read in an anonymous process by an editorial board of students, who can be in any major or grade classification. Board members make decisions on what to include, artistic considerations affecting the organization, and financial factors to determine the number of pages and copies printed. FHSU Printing Services prints 500 copies of the journal once a year.
Submissions for the 2009 edition of "Lines" are due by Feb. 13, 2009. Applications for the 2009 Editorial Board are due by Oct. 3, 2008. Queries should be sent to the student editor, Cameron Bashaw, by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. "I encourage students in all majors to consider applying to join the Editorial Board. But remember that current policy is that board members are not eligible to submit work to that year's edition of "Lines." And I welcome anyone's questions and suggestions for the journal" said Bashaw.
