The Percival Review unveiled its 21st annual edition of the student publication at an unveiling party on June 11. The Percival Review is a student publication journal of visual and literary arts that features submissions selected by a student committee to show the work and diversity of the students at SPSCC.
During the event, contributors had the opportunity to read and display their work in front of attendees. Presenters included students Carrie Ann Thunnel, Spencer Kelty, Justin Hall, Jonathan Jones, and Percival Review Co-editor Trésor de La Vigne.
This year’s journal began as works of art that emphasized global issues, but other submissions not categorized under this topic were still chosen to appear in the publication. “Everything submitted was just wonderful and really expressed what human experiences can be,” said Percival Review Co-editor Kittanya Locken.
This year’s Percival Review includes submissions of painting, photography, sketches, short stories, and poems; many of which are focused on nature aspects of Olympia and Washington state.
“We started submissions way back in October and took through fall and winter quarter getting all pieces catalogued, reviewed, sorted, and edited. And then in spring quarter we actually started the journal’s publication,” said Locken.
