Latest edition of Arcturus launches

By Jonathan Beatima - Staff Reporter



Highline's literary magazine, Arcturus, is having a launch party on June 6 in building 2 at 11 a.m. to debut their 2019 edition.

The Arcturus magazine has showcased the poetry, illustra- tions, and other various forms of artwork by Highline students and alumni. Formerly, known as Ex- cogitation and The Gallery, High- line's literary magazine has been sharing artwork for 51 years. Arc- turus won first prize for the Asso- ciation of College and University Print Shops for last year's edition and a Washington Community College Humanities Association Award in 2016.

Arcturus will host a launch party to further celebrate the cre- ativity of Highline student and alumni. The free event will be catered, and feature many of the artists in the magazine who will be there to talk about their art.

"There will be food. We'll have some of the artists talk about their work and we'll talk about the process of how to sub- mit," said Arcturus Editor Shi- yana Daniels. "It's right before finals, so it's really pleasant to make your week positive. People invite their families and friends to see it, and it's a good time."

The theme for this year's maga- zine is The Spark Inside. The cover was illustrated by Olena Velichko. Editors of the magazine wanted to remind students of the beauty that rests inside them, and the light they can put into the world.

Daniels said this year Arc- turus wanted to introduce some new ideas. She helped start the Arcturus Instagram page which features art from Highline stu- dents and alumni from the current magazine and previous years as well.

This year the magazine re-

ceived more than 260 submis- sions. When an editor sees a piece they like, it goes onto the next stage of the submission process, where the names are stripped off the piece, and the editors vote whether or not they want in the magazine.

"Usually [we look for] things that hold strong diction and things that captivate our edi- tors," Daniels said. "We have a lot of editors coming from dif- ferent creative backgrounds. All

the names are taken off submis- sions so it is blindly picked and the editors vote."

Daniels said the organization hopes to get more involved on campus and help out with other events, such as the poetry contest that happened earlier this year.

"We were there for the poetry contest in the beginning of this quarter. We have the top three prize winners and honorable men- tions at the event featured in this year's Arcturus magazine," Dan iels said. "We're starting up some events. Hopefully we'll be able to do more tabling events, because we believe the art is beautiful."

Daniels said they are excited to release their newest edition of the Arcturus magazine and hope students make out it this event.

"We hope to see everybody come, and we're really excited for this year. We put a lot of love and attention to this. It's our baby. Sub- mit, submit, submit. We're always looking for submissions," she said.
