STUDENT-RUN LITERARY ARTS JOURNAL 14TH EDITION PREMIERE EVENT AT ST. PHILIP'S COLLEGE NOV. 14

The 14th edition of St. Philip's College’s student-run Tiger PAWS (Personal Academic Writing Space) literary and art journal will be celebrated with a reception Nov. 14 at 4:30 p.m. in the Bowden Alumni Center of the college's G. J. Sutton Learning Center building at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive. 

The event is traditionally led by the college’s department of communications and learning team for 100 guests, keeping subscribers and new followers aware of the premiere and availability of the latest version of the six-year-old publication, while recognizing the accomplishments of students who are the publication’s contributors and editorial staff scholarship recipients, said college communications and learning faculty member Jamie Miranda.

The event includes a presentation of awards for student artwork and writing in both English and Spanish, said Miranda. The distribution of 250 free hard copies of the journal is a traditional element of the reception experience as well, particularly valuable as the Fall 2018 edition is not yet posted online, Miranda said. 

Established in 2012, Tiger PAWS is the college’s first student-run literary and arts journal of original, unpublished degree, certificate and transfer candidate work published in hardcopy and online forms at the end of fall and spring semesters at the college. Content consists of short fiction, non-fiction essays and journals, poetry, photography, fine art and digital art. Student editorial staff members learn as they assist in choosing among hundreds of contributed student submissions for publication for each edition. Editorial staff who become paid Student Engagement Grant recipients are selected to lead editorial efforts in the college’s fall and spring semesters.
