• The Department of Foreign Languages is pleased to present the first edition of Prism, its multilingual literary magazine, dedicated to the creative and academic writing of students of languages taught in the department.

    We plan to publish new editions of the magazine at least once a year, and we encourage students in the department’s courses to submit their best writing in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, or Spanish. The works can be poems, anecdotes, short stories, interviews, reviews, travel chronicles, essays, short dramas, or even comic strips.

    Submissions should be sent in Microsoft Word documents by e-mail to Dr. Vicente Gomis-Izquierdo ( or to Dr. Marveta Ryan-Sams ( at any time during the academic year. Please contact Dr. Ryan-Sams if you would like a hard copy of the magazine.
