The submission deadline to be included in a new edition of Highline’s literary magazine is coming up on Feb. 14.

The magazine, called Arcturus, has been published at Highline for more than 40 years. It catalogs literary and artistic works submitted by Highline community members.

Highline literary magazine Arcturus launches on Zoom

For the past 40 years, Highline has published a literary magazine, Arcturus, with art from Highline students, staff, faculty, and alumni. But this year is different. With COVID-19, the editors face new challenges.

“Producing a physical object without ever touching the different options for cover stock or paper texture presents certain challenges,” Arcturus faculty adviser Susan Rich said. “Normally, the editors would visit with Dave Weber at the print shop. We’d also sit down with sales representatives on campus. Not this year.”
