A message from Analecta’s editor:
This is Mitchell Robinson, the editor of IUSB’s annual, award-winning, Literary and Arts magazine, THE ANALECTA. I wanted to wish everyone happy holidays. More importantly, however, I wanted to remind everyone what a perfect time winter break is to write poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, drama, take pictures, or even paint.
The snow is on the ground, your hot chocolate is steaming, your slippers are warming your feet, and your blanket is keeping you company. The book that you really wanted to read all semester but couldn’t find the time/brainpower to read as you wrote all those papers, is on your coffee table, facedown and open mid-way (for me, it’s The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad and Miss Lonleyhearts by Nathaniel West.) With the idyllic conditions for your newest masterwork, you turn off the reruns of Scrubs and begin to write. Not papers, responses, nor reflections, but something that is more personal, that moves you, humors you, makes you feel something other than the cold bite on your nose. Or perhaps, the snow on the ground makes you want to add a little color to your break, so you use the acrylic paint or new camera you received for the Holidays.
So write over the break or perfect the work that your wrote over the semester and submit to THE ANALECTA!
