Pure Grass for Scribendi

April 3, 2017

Last Sunday, all in a couple of hours, the Scribendi staff experienced love, nature, comradery, death, and democracy. We came as close to meeting Walt Whitman as I think we ever will. And we weren’t reading Leaves of Grass: we were living it. It was March 26 and exactly 125 years after the day of … Read More

Marigold Parade 2016

November 8, 2016

The 2016 Marigold Parade was everything a first or long-time viewer could want. It was filled with everything from candy to live music, and had way too many dogs dressed in cute little skeleton outfits (if there can be such a thing as that). It even included a vibrant parade through part of the West … Read More

A Northern Californian/Temporary Oregonian’s Scribendi Semester

September 19, 2016

When I tell people that I’m a native Northern Californian and a temporary Oregonian, they’re usually confused about why I’m in New Mexico. I admit, my situation is a little unique. Heck, when I told people I was going to New Mexico for a semester, half of them thought I was going to Mexico and … Read More

Scribendi Team-Building Workshop 2016

September 6, 2016

“Mandatory” isn’t often met with grins and nods. More often than not, it’s received with groans and mumbled (or sometimes brazenly loud) complaints. August 25th wasn’t much different. After all, who wants to spend three hours on a Saturday evening with seventeen strangers? But, as our professor Amaris Ketcham had instructed, one by one we … Read More

Updates

February 8, 2016

It’s magazine makin’ season! Over break, each staff member designed a potential cover for the magazine. Within the first couple weeks of the semester we narrowed our choices down to eight potential covers. We have far too many talented designers on staff (lucky for us), so it was mildly heartbreaking for everyone to have to … Read More

Inside the Review Process

November 30, 2015

The Scribendi staff would like to thank everyone who submitted this year! We have tentatively decided what will be published in 2016. In this blog post, I will describe the review process. First, we read. Over the course of the last month, all three editors and all eleven staffers each read the 127 poems, fifty-two … Read More

Scribendi has been hard at work reviewing submissions for the past several weeks. We have a great selection of writing, art, and open media to choose from and we are very excited to start putting the magazine together! Our Homecoming was a success, despite our staff getting partially smothered by glitter from our star and … Read More

Meet the 2016 Staff!

October 12, 2015

Amaris Ketcham, Faculty Advisor In 5 words or less, describe what you’d do if confronted with a bear wearing a pirate hat wielding a roll of duct tape. Lament holding a honey jar. What is your favorite work of art? The Dante’s Inferno Exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. What is your most irrational … Read More
