Aurora: 2008

Poetry ♦  Fiction ♦   Essays  ♦  Art  ♦  Photography  ♦  Interviews  ♦  Staff  ♦  Archives

Aurora Online began in 2003.

Each fall, students in ENG 420 (Stylistics, Editing, and Publishing) publish Aurora Online. The magazine is a forum for creative work by Eastern Kentucky University students. It is also an opportunity for students to edit and publish a literary magazine.  Since its first publication, Aurora Online has expanded to include art, music, drama, dance, and digital photography.

Aurora Online is an extension of the print Aurora magazine published each spring.  The English and Theatre Department has published the print edition every year since 1924.  Until 1969, the magazine was titled Belles Lettres.

The 2008 Aurora team would like to thank Phillip Logsdon, IT Web Support Consultant, for his assistance with the Web site.
