Contributors

Staff will provide you with copies of this year’s issue, a thank-you packet for your participation and interest in the publication, and the opportunity to read or present your work to a captive audience at the release celebration.

Students and Everyone Else

Meet the contributors, view the contributor art gallery, read your poetry, fiction, or other prose during an open-mic hour, feel the welcoming embrace of those interested in the creative arts, and hob-nob with IVCC’s talented students.

2018 IVCC Create Contest update: unfortunately we had too few submissions for our staff to feel comfortable naming contest winners.

Staff Openings

We’re looking for this year’s staff to plan, design, edit, market, and publish the 2018 issue of River Currents. Nearly everyone from last year has graduated, which means we are a clean slate and looking for our next creative, artsy, and motivated batch of IVCC students.

If you think that you or someone you know is interested, here’s what to do:

  1. Take a look at our Staff Descriptions that explains what opportunities and responsibilities come with each position.
  2. Attend our informational and “first staff meeting” of the semester: Friday, Sept. 15 at noon, room A-329.

  3. Print this “Staff Opportunity Statement of Interest” handout and return it to our faculty advisor, Tracy Lee in room A-329 by Monday, Sept. 18 at 1:00 p.m.

  4. Be ready to create something awesome as a lasting legacy of IVCC’s talented student body.

Here’s a link to our past River Currents staff, and an electronic archive of past issues.
