History of Aurora Online
This version of Aurora is the fourth edition of the Aurora Online Literary Journal. Aurora Online was created in 2003 by the English 420 (Stylistics, Editing, and Publishing) class, along with instructors Gaby and Chris Daniels. The goal of the class was to create a contemporary, user-friendly website that could illustrate the cutting edge, original prose and the creative abilities of the students at Eastern Kentucky University. The online version was an extension of the Aurora magazine that is published each fall.
Aurora hasn’t always been Aurora; it began as a small paperback magazine titled Belles Lettres. Under the editing of Robert H. Rankin, and sponsorship of Roy B. Clark, Belles Lettres survived until 1969 when the title was changed to Aurora. The print edition has been published every year since 1935.
Since its installment, Aurora Online has expanded to include art, music, drama, dance, and digital photography submissions.
The 2006 Aurora Team would like to thank Phillip Logsdon, a Web Support Consultant, for all of his help.
