The Department of English Studies is excited to announce the second issue of Angles, a student journal of new writing, published in March of 2017.
For close to a year, a dedicated group of student editors worked to gather material, consult with writers, and design and layout the journal for printing. The second issue contains twenty pieces that span a variety of writing genres, including personal essays, senior thesis excerpts, as well as fiction and poetry.
Angles endeavors to be a place where ideas can be explored openly, an outlet equal in spirit to the diverse range of interests and perspectives present among the students of the Department of English Studies. Its defining mission is to offer students an opportunity to experience the publishing process and showcase their work.
Copies are available in the campus Kinokuniya bookstore, from Angles editors and Department of English Studies faculty.
Angles can also be read online at https://anglesjournal.org
