Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College Publishes Student AnthologyApr 22nd, 2016 | By Tom Urbanski | Category: Online TC News, Tribal College News, Web Exclusive
Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) has published the fourth edition of its literary anthology, The Thunderbird Review. The 97-page book features writing and art submitted by FDLTCC students and residents of northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin communities.
The journal received over 100 submissions this year to consider for inclusion, and the editorial staff spent a significant amount of time reading and discussing the submissions to decide which pieces to include. This year, student editors Matthew Thiry and Taylor Leuzzo worked with recently retired FDLTCC English instructor Jan Chronister and newly hired English instructor Darci Schummer to produce the publication.
The Thunderbird Review anthology is an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in writing, editing, and publishing at FDLTCC. “Working on the journal is a great experience for students,” says Schummer. “It is also so important for students to have a place to submit their work. The feeling of seeing your work in print for the first time, which it is for many of these students, is indescribable.”
