Help Name the Kaplan University Literary Journal

Kaplan University's New Literary Journal Needs a Name!

Kaplan University's New Literary Journal Needs a Name!

“Seize control of your splendid language. Work your alchemical mumbo jumbo. Mix up your slang. Blow your innumerable horns. Play with feeling.”

-Rick Moody

I wrote this quote on an index card when I was an undergraduate journalism and anthropology student at the University of Missouri-Columbia in the late 1990s. At the time (and still today), I loved what writer Rick Moody had to say about writing and its role in self-expression and creativity.

In fact, earlier this week I rediscovered this quote tucked away in a book as I was dusting the bookcases in my office (antiquated pieces of furniture as they may be … I know so many of you read books nowadays on Kindles, Nooks, and Crannies).

Reading, as many of us know, is essential to effective writing and clear thinking. And I’m very excited to announce that Kaplan University is creating an online literary magazine to showcase excellent poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction from thoughtful, creative writers.

Here’s the really fun part, though: This new literary venture needs a name.

You have until tomorrow, Friday, September 30th, to email your title suggestions to literaryjournal[at]kaplan[dot]edu. For more information about this contest, please click here.

Cheers,
