Eckerd Review

Current Issue

Dear Reader,

For nearly four and a half decades, Eckerd Review has presented exemplary written and visual artwork to the Eckerd community. This year you hold yet another edition highlighting the best talent. Our goal in producing this magazine is to continue Eckerd’s tradition of fostering the creative arts and inspiring artists and authors to do what they do best: Create. We encourage you to indulge in our 2014 issue with care and comfort, and we hope you share the privilege of the publication with your friends and family.

Eckerd Review thrives on those who dedicate their time, sweat, and passion to its production, and to those who help us, we extend a heartfelt thanks. We also are grateful for our contributors and our readers, without whom this magazine could not flourish.

We thank President Donald Eastman and Dean of Students James Annarelli for their ever-present support, Adam Bedard for his maintenance of our website, and Lova Patterson and the Eckerd College Organization of Students for the financial aid that keeps Eckerd Review alive and well. We also thank Scott Ward, Professor of Literature and Creative Writing, and his colleagues for their dedication to the written word and the development of Eckerd’s creative talent. To Professor of Visual Arts Arthur Skinner, we extend great appreciation for his aid in the collection and presentation of the artwork featured in this journal.

As with every recent edition, this one could not have come out as clean without the eagle eye of Staff Adviser and College Editor Angie Jones, who catches everything from grammatical errors to extra spacing at the beginning of a paragraph. And of course, our deepest gratitude goes to Faculty Adviser and Assistant Professor of Creative Writing Helen Wallace, who maintains the quality of the magazine with a graceful hand. Helen and her husband, Peter, have been essential to the family Eckerd Review cultivates within its staff.

Dearest reader, prepare yourself for a uniquely engaging series of prose, poetry, and visual art before you flip to the next page. We are pleased to present the 2014 edition of Eckerd Review.
