Welcome to the 2005 Aurora Online Literary Magazine!
Eastern Kentucky University's Aurora Online accepted entries from both graduate and undergraduate students from EKU throughout the months of September and October, 2005. Within these pages, the best of the best have been published after having been reviewed by a panel of sixteen judges, all undergraduate English majors. We are pleased to present, for the first time in Aurora's history, two winning entries from a new category: Music. We look forward to expanding the scope of the magazine in the years to come. We invite you to sit back, relax, and prepare to enjoy some of EKU's writers, musicians and artists!
