The annual “Aquarian” magazine provides an opportunity for Jacksonville University students to get their original works recognized and published.
The first section is for creative writing, including works of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, screenplays and play scripts.
The second section is visual arts, including drawing, painting, mixed media, film, animation, ceramics and metalworking.
Visual and writen forms come together on some pages. Juan Pablo Calvo's digital photography piece accompanies Jacob Schuman’s poem “Dancer.”
Ali Pordeli created the 2013 cover and designed the magazine.
The staff of this year’s 118-page “Aquarian” was comprised of JU students and faculty advisor Sarah Murphy, associate professor of English.
Kyla Wade, part of the editorial staff, thanks Murphy in the acknowledgements: “… you always bring such a fun and cheerful atmosphere to our meetings while guiding us to be the best we can be.”
“Aquarian” publishes every spring and is distributed for free on Jacksonville University’s campus. The magazine is also online at aquarian.ju.edu.
