YORK, PA. — York College’s student-run literary magazine, The York Review, is looking to highlight their digital online presence and host live events.
For more than 30 years, The York Review has collected literature, fine art, and photography from York College’s student body. Since the magazine’s inception, The York Review’s goal has been to provide a platform for the voice that the works of art have collectively created. The unceasing goal of expanding their digital space will allow The York Review to share this voice with a larger audience.
Over the years, The York Review has expanded to include all forms of creative expression that can be published through print, audio, digital, video, and live event formats. They plan to continue expanding the diversity of what they publish, including a wider array of voices working in poetry, fine art, photography, comics, graphic art, screenplays, fashion design, videos, comedy, and more.
The York Review is kicking off its second season of Rough Draft podcast, with the focus being on local artists. The magazine’s online activity will also expand, such as by re-publishing work from past issues, and highlighting the work on social media to bring new attention to work done by alumni. Bi-weekly student artist interviews will also be available online, and original work will be published weekly on the website.
Austin Wolfe, The York Review’s publisher said, “York’s creative community has evolved and expanded. We will do the same. We only ask one thing: Be weird with us.”
The York Review collaborates with other college and community organizations such as Campus Activities Board (CAB), Sigma Tau Delta, and Downtown York for First Friday events. Students will be invited to share their work at “Spoken Word Nights” and writing workshops.
