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.

2017 Release Party

April 27, 2017 will hereby go down in history as the day River Currents hosted its 2017 Release Party with a wave of friendly and artsy reception, not to mention some wonderfully minty brownies. Thank you everyone who participated on the 2017 student staff, the 2017  IVCC Creates Contest winners, our talented contributors, and the mix of student, faculty, administration and staff attendees. We could not do what we do without the honesty and bravery of each IVCC student’s unique voice or the investment on part of faculty staff/administration to support student creativity.
