Talisman-Flyer-Rev-Feb2014-650It’s Spring, and that means it’s time for the new issue of Talisman, Skyline College’s Literary Magazine. Believe it or not this year’s issue is the 45th! But the publication doesn’t look a day over 38 (good genes). Instructors, please let your students know. There are writers and artists in all of your classes– from history to chemistry, to environmental science, to cosmetology, please encourage them to submit their work. Talisman publishes student poetry, prose (fiction, nonfiction, and drama—short scene or monologue) and art as well as offering cash prizes in contests.

The Talisman has a talented team of student editors and submissions are coming in but its down to the last push (the official deadline is March 7th, though we can extend this up to 5 days). Certainly let all of your students know but if you know of particular students who have shown promise in writing or art (you know the ones who spend the class period doodling those amazing pictures of dragons), give them that extra encouragement! Also, if you have the time please offer to take a look at theirpiece before they submit to Talisman, to catch any errors.

For more information please contact Faculty Advisor Rob Williams (Language Arts Division), williamsrob@smccd.edu. Students can turn in work directly to Rob Williams in Building 8, Room 8218; in addition, there is a drop-off box in the Language Arts Division office in Room 8112. Thank you! Hope to see you at the Talisman Release Party and Reading in the Gallery in May.
