FLARE: The Flagler Review to unveil new edition with readings on April 18

FLARE: The Flagler Review, the student-produced literary journal at Flagler College, will mark the publication of its Spring 2016 issue with an unveiling and reading at Flagler’s Markland House on Monday, April 18, at 6 p.m.

This is the 26th volume of the publication, which seeks to publish both up-and-coming and established writers. FLARE includes poetry, fiction, nonfiction and art. The literary journal is edited and published by Flagler students in the college’s English Department.

Markland House is located at 102 King St. in downtown St. Augustine. The event is free and open to the public.

In 2015, FLARE won third place in the Four Year Literary Magazine of the Year category at the College Media Association’s Pinnacle Awards.

 

Looking back on FLARE as it moves forward

By Laura Henning

I will be honest–it’s been difficult not being a part of FLARE this semester. After two and a half years with the journal, two of which I was editor, it certainly felt strange not meeting up with the rest of the staff on Thursday nights in the Gargoyle (Flagler’s online newspaper) lab. Thursday evenings were always FLARE evenings. Our meetings were one of the bright spots of my week, something I looked forward to no matter how stressed or exhausted I was. The fact that this semester I have a figure drawing class on Thursdays from 5 to 7 p.m., the same time FLARE meets, has prohibited me from just, you know, casually hanging out in the room and reliving my Glory Days…and perhaps giving some suggestions…and commenting on artwork…and helping to arrange pieces…

FLARE to unveil Fall 2015 edition

The staff of FLARE: The Flagler Review is thrilled to announce the arrival of our Fall 2015 issue. Our editors have been hard at work this semester, going through hundreds of submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art, and now that we have selected the finest pieces for our journal, we are looking forward to sharing them!

The previous edition of FLARE, published in Spring 2015, recently won third place in the Four Year Literary Magazine of the Year category at the College Media Association’s Pinnacle Awards. We strive to produce a high-quality literary journal, and our staff is always looking for fresh, exciting voices from across the country and across the world.

We will be unveiling our newest issue on Monday, Dec. 7, at 6 p.m. in Markland House at Flagler College. There were will readings from the new edition, as well as readings by Flagler faculty and the student editors of FLARE. The launch party is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Markland House is located at 102 King Street.
