Madison Baldwin, Chattanooga, Tenn. —

The official release of the 2014 edition of the Sequoya Review Literary Arts Magazine is Feb. 14.

The Sequoya Review is a collection of fiction writing, poetry, non-fiction writing and art from students, alumni and other members of the university.

The first UTC literary journal was published in 1965, making this academic year the 48th year of publication for the Sequoya Review.

Twenty-four students from the Literary Editing and Publishing class handpick, proof read, and copy edit each entry that appears on the website and in the bound copy of the Sequoya Review. Art students aid in designing the journal as well as promoting it on and off campus.

“It doesn’t matter what major you are or if you have no experience, if you have an interest in writing or art you should absolutely submit to the Sequoya Review,” Sybil Baker, faculty adviser for the Sequoya Review, said.

The 2014 Sequoya Review editing staff includes Rachel Ford, Editor-in-Chief; Emily Cahoon, Assistant Editor; Stephen Archer, Online Editor; Courtney Lachapelle, Prose Editor; Rachel Smith, Assistant Prose Editor; Carol Glover, Assistant Creative Non-Fiction Editor; Mariel Groppe, Poetry Editor; Brittany Marcum, Assistant Poetry Editor; Travis Hitchcock, Art Editor; and Tara Harris, Assistant Art Editor.

According to Baker, identities of those who submit works to appear in the Sequoya Review are withheld during the selection process to avoid biases.

Free copies of the publication will be available in the library, the English Department office in Holt Hall 203, the Sequoya Review office in the University Center and various other locations on campus.

“We encourage everyone to pick up a copy, look at the publication’s website, and also follow us on Twitter and Facebook,” Baker sad.

The Sequoya Review will begin accepting submissions for the 2015 edition in August 2014. Students, alumni, and other members of UTC can submit works online at
