The Expressionists 2018-2019 Magazine Launch Party

Guest Post by Shea McCollum, Library Marketing Assistant.

This past Wednesday, April 10th at 11 A.M, the campus literary magazine The Expressionists had their annual launch party in the Kresge Reading Room. The Expressionists magazine is our campus’ student run literary magazine that features the artwork, poetry, and short stories of student contributors. This magazine is one of the great long-lasting traditions on Pepperdine’s campus and has been a part of student life for over 45 years now.

Under the guidance of the co-editors Iris Chen and Gabrielle Mathys, a panel of both student and faculty readers reviewed the over 200 pages of short stories and 100 poems submitted to choose the featured work in the 2018-2019 edition of the magazine. In remembrance of the tragedies of this past fall, this year’s theme is Transformation and a special section of the magazine is set aside for work inspired by the Woolsey Fire.
