The first publication from Santa Fe University Press has been launched! GLYPH 2016 is a beautiful anthology of undergraduate writing form Santa Fe University of Art and Design, edited by Melinda Freudenberger, Marisa Doherty, Amaya Sabrina Hoke, Andrew Koss, and Brianna Neumann, under the guidance of creative writing and literature faculty member Anne Valente. As described by the editorial team:
“Composed entirely of literary work by Santa Fe University of Art and Design undergraduates, spanning across all genres, Glyph proves there is beauty in even the loneliest of sentiments – in grief and fear, in the flailing body, and in the entangled world we live in. This year’s volume examines the internal workings of culture, race and sexuality from the perspective of a new generation. A mosaic work – reflecting places within and outside of ourselves, reclaiming our power as our own while breaking down borders that have previously governed us.”
The book was designed by Graphic Design student Caleb Ortega in collaboration with the editorial team.
As with previous years, Glyph 2016 was launched with a gala evening of readings at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. This year, there was a second event at Collected Works Bookstore, Santa Fe, featuring additional readers and debut performances of a number of pieces from the book.
