The spring term is coming to a close but not without an imaginative “pop” before finals, thanks to the creativity of PCC students and their contributions to a variety of campus literary journals.

PCC’s Cascade Campus kicks off the festivities. Beginning Tuesday, May 31 at 3 p.m., students and published authors will share their work featured in the current issue of Cascade’s annual literary journal, The Pointed Circle. The reading will take place in Terrell Hall, Rm. 122, with English faculty Wendy Bourgeois and her Writing 246 students hosting.

Later that week, on Thursday, June 2, the Sylvania Campus will hold a creative writing celebration at noon in the North View Gallery, located in the Communication Technology building. Students and published authors featured in the current issue of Alchemy, Sylvania’s annual literary journal, will present their work, as will this year’s Creative Writing Focus Award recipients.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
