Annual student literary magazine published

DSC_0489

Georgian Court University loves to show off its students’ talents, and the annual Fountain Spray, GCU’s annual literary journal, gets the job done. The 2015  collection of student poems, short stories, artistic photos, paintings, and graphic designs was published in April.

“The student editors of the magazine have the extremely tough job of looking over all of the submissions and selecting which ones are published in the magazine. It’s really hard because there are so many great submissions but a limited amount of space,” said Caitlin Roman, a senior English major and honors program student.

Caitlin and contributing students worked with Fountain Spray moderator Dr. Russ McDonald, Drs. Edmond Salsali and Geraldine Velasquez from GCU’s graphic design/multimedia program, and art professor Leo Morrisey. Graphic design students provided layout for the entire magazine. After the publication, a release party was held, where students read their work or talked about their inspiration.

“To me, publishing is extremely important because it allows the opportunity for art and beauty to be shared with everyone,” said Caitlin. “Some of the best poems and art pieces I have ever seen have been in the Fountain Spray.”
