  • The Department of Foreign Languages is proud to offer the second edition of its multilingual literary magazine, dedicated to the creative and academic writing of students of languages taught in the department. This issue begins with a poem by a special contributor, Jun Akiyoshi, a graduate  student in the Department of English. Akiyoshi’s haiku captures the spirit of diversity and unity that this magazine seeks to express.

    This edition features works in all of the languages offered in the department. In future issues, we hope to continue to showcase works in all of the languages in even more genres. 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 Vicente Gomis-Izquierdo (vgiz@iup.edu), to Yongtaek Kim (yt.kim@iup.edu), or to Marveta Ryan-Sams (mmryan@iup.edu) at any time during the academic year.
