Spring Issue of MCCC’s Kelsey Review Is Now Available Online; Submission Deadline for 2017 Journal Is May 31

4/10/17


English faculty member Jackie Vogtman is the editor of Kelsey Review. The submission deadline for the next year's issue is May 31.

West Windsor, N.J. – Kelsey Review, Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) literary journal that went to a fully online quarterly format this past fall, has just posted its Spring 2017 issue. The latest issue features art, poetry, and prose from contributors who live or work in Mercer County.

This issue features artwork by Corrina Creekmur; fiction by Sofia Bae, Aaron Campbell and Harvey Steinberg; poetry by Mason Bolton, Joseph Dresner, Elane Gutterman, Yamini Pathak and David Vogtman; and a nonfiction piece by Rodney Richards.

Editor Jacky Vogtman, a member of MCCC’s English faculty, points to a couplet that ends Elane Gutterman’s poem, Big Windows and a Patio to Catch the Light: “We all want to believe/in our future.”

Observes Vogtman, “I keep coming back to that stunning couplet. This being our Spring issue, that couplet speaks with all the hopefulness that accompanies the season, but not without a hint of irony and melancholy.”

The current as well as past issues of Kelsey Review are available at www.mccc.edu/kelseyreview. (The final issue of the 2016-17 academic year will be released in June.) In addition to Vogtman, the editorial board includes Ellen Jacko, Roberta Clipper and Luray Gross.

Those who live, work, or study in Mercer County, NJ, are invited to submit work for consideration for the 2017-18 journal in the following categories: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art, photography and reviews. The submission deadline is May 31. For more information, email Kelsey.Review@mccc.edu or visit www.mccc.edu/kelseyreview. . For more information, email Kelsey.Review@mccc.edu or visit www.mccc.edu/kelseyreview.

Funding for Kelsey Review has been made possible in part by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and the New Jersey State Council for the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
