Volume 20 of Anthology Published
In case you missed the announcement last week, you should know that the Volume 20 of Anthology has been published and it showcases Tarleton students' exceptional creative talents.

A forum for student prose, poetry, and visual arts, Anthology began to take shape in 1994 through the efforts of two undergraduate students, Cris Edwards and Jimmy Hood, and two English and Languages Department faculty members, Benedda Konvicka and Marilyn Robitaille.

This dedicated team championed their vision, secured university funding and support, solicited and judged submissions, recruited help, designed the journal, and began ensuring their dream would withstand the test of time -- which it definitely has.

Anthology's first volume was published in 1995; a new volume has been published each April since. Each volume offers carefully selected works and is celebrated with Creative Arts Day festivities that include an editors' luncheon, readings by a renowned author, a contributors' reception, and Editors' Choice Awards. The 2014 Creative Arts Day featured Oklahoma Poet Laureate Nathan Brown as guest speaker.

While Anthology has been available in print and online for quite some time, its distribution range has been fairly limited -- until now. 

A recent Dick Smith Library digitization project has broadened access to this publication and created a searchable version of Anthology through The Portal to Texas History, which is created and maintained by the University of North Texas Libraries' Digital Projects Unit.
