The Garnet, the Hampden-Sydney College literary magazine, held a reception on Wednesday, April 18, to honor the launch of its 121st issue. The event which took place in the Parents & Friends Lounge was attended by students, faculty, and other members of the community.
Tyler Heslop '12, Editor of the Garnet,gave some opening remarks and noted: "I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to know and work with the writers and artists featured in the pages of this great Hampden-Sydney tradition. I would like to thank all who have helped me construct this magazine, especially Dr. Richanrd McClintock."
Tyler's remarks were followed by a session in which students who submitted to the magazine read a section from their work. Most memorable was Jake Pierce's '14 reading form his fictional work titled The Woman in the Yellow Dress. The 2012 issue of the magazine featured 35 submissions, 21 authors, and four sections: poetry, fictional writing, essay, and art/photography.
The Garnet, founded in 1859, continues to serve as a student-produced journal of literature and the arts promoting the creative talent of Hampden-Sydney students.
