The third edition of the Literary Arts Magazine features fifteen Berks students; some of these students will read from their works during the reception on Thursday, April 22. Marilyn J. Fox, Arts Coordinator at Penn State Berks, coordinates publication of the magazine.
"I created the magazine so that students involved in writing, poetry, and photography would have a venue for their work, as well as a beautiful piece for their portfolio and a keepsake," Fox commented.
Attendees are encouraged to stay for Theatre students' production of their own original works, which will be held each evening at 8:00 p.m.
