Folio shared the artistic talents of Salt Lake Community College students during their Fall 2015 issue publication party last month.
Folio advisor Brandon Alva kicked off the event by giving thanks to those who helped with the project, titled Point A to Point Z. The theme describes the way humans live and reminds everyone of the importance of art and literature in everyday life.
“[When] moving from Point A to Point B, Point B is [the] dry cleaners; the DMV; if you’re lucky, sometimes Point B is the donut shop,” Alva explains. “[Point Zs are] points which we dream of going to, and must always remember to keep in mind along the way.”
After the opening, magazine contributors read their works aloud for friends, family and fellow students to enjoy. Authors shared stories about family, personal experiences and poetry.
Printed copies of the magazine were distributed to those in attendance.
“We hope that you’ll think of the art and the literary in [Point A to Point Z] as a guide to those little essential journeys, making sure that you’re where you want to go,” Alva says.
How to participate
Current SLCC students may contribute up to ten pieces of prose, poetry, visual art, photography and audio visual productions each fall and spring semester. Entries are judged by fellow student writers, artists and editors to be chosen for digital or print publication.
Artists who want to submit original art and literary work to Folio for the Spring 2016 edition may do so through the magazine’s online submission page.
