On Monday January 24, in Goolsby 208, the Corn Creek Review held its first meeting of the year.

Corn Creek Review is Young Harris College’s one and only literary magazine. It is an annual publication that features poetry, short stories, artwork and other submissions by students of YHC.

The magazine is a completely student-led production. The content, cover and design are designed by YHC students.

The production of this literary magazine dates all the way to 1963. Initially, it was named The Word, but because it is student run. The staff of 1970, were able to change rename the magazine to better represent the magazine.

“In 1970, the students decided to rename it the Corn Creek Review, because they looked at Corn Creek, which is a creek that runs through River Falls, as a place of beauty and relaxation,” said Amanda Lawrence, associate professor of English and Corn Creek Review Sponsor.

The Corn Creek Review is student run from start to finish, and everyone is invited to join as well as submit their work.

“The Corn Creek Review is an expressive outlet that allows students to show their creative talents in ways that inspire and challenge other students on campus. This is my first semester on the staff, and I am thrilled and blessed to be part of this,” said Amanda Noonan, a junior English major from Smyrna.

When the literary magazine is completed and printed in April, there will be one or more judges that will pick the winning submissions. These submissions could result in an award or a cash prize for the author or authors.

For students that want more information about how to submit works or would like to join the staff, students can attend the next meeting which will be held Monday, January 31 in Goolsby room 208.
