End-of-semester publication party
Journal publication party on Nov. 30, 6–7:30 p.m.
The Eleven Rivers Review hosts a publication party to showcase the newly completed journal, present the first print copies to contributors, and celebrate the exceptional talents of the student contributors. All contributors are invited to attend and are encouraged to bring friends and family. Student editors, artists, and writers are given an opportunity to read or discuss their work. Many of the artists choose to bring and display the art that was selected for the journal. Free food and drinks will be available.
