A New Beginning

A New Beginning

This fall the Writer’s Guild at Delta College went through some changes. Sarah Antinora, a newly hired English professor, became its advisor.  In addition, the guild has new officers and new layout and copy editors. 

The Artifact, the literary magazine published by the Writers' Guild since 2006, has been given a new name – Artifact Nouveau.  Copies will be distributed locally just before the Spring Semester and will be available on campus the first week of classes.

Artifact Nouveau continues to look for quality content (writings, art, photographs etc.) for future issues.  Send items for consideration to artifactsjdc@gmail.com
