The Eyrie Art & Literary Magazine staff excitedly unboxes the 36th edition of the magazine that they’ve worked so hard to complete, preparing for its release to the public in just a few days.
Since 1982, Tallahassee Community College has published a yearly edition of the Eyrie, a student-run magazine showcasing unpublished literature and artwork submitted by TCC students.
“The Eyrie is a great opportunity for students to feel more connected to their campus,” said Niki Costantino, the Eyrie’s Faculty Advisor of the last five years. “It’s an awesome testament to creativity and leadership for the students.”
Nearly 300 art and literature pieces were submitted to the Eyrie by students over the course of 2016, 53 of which were selected for publishing in the 36th edition of the Eyrie.
“I’m excited for people to see the retro cover and consistency of the design throughout the magazine,” said the 2017 Eyrie Design and Layout Editor, Donald “D.J.” Paradis. “I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learned so much from this process.”
The unveiling of the newest edition of the Eyrie will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18 in the Fine and Performing Arts Center Lobby. The event is free to attend, but business casual attire is required. Refreshments will be provided, as well as music and speeches made by genre winners. All TCC students and staff are invited to attend.
“It’s a great opportunity for the TCC community to come together and celebrate the students who have had their work published, but also for the students who have worked really hard to make the magazine,” said Costantino, “If you love to listen to works of literature read out loud, or if you like looking at art, it’s a great community event and a chance to really celebrate students.”
