New Assisi Journal of Arts & Letters Now Online
35+ Poems, Prose, and Photographs Guided by Franciscan Values
With more than 35 submissions of poems, prose, and photographs, the new issue of Assisi: An Online Journal of Arts & Letters is now online at assisijournal.org. Volume 5, Issue 1 of Assisi features contributors from right here in Brooklyn and as far away as Detroit, San Jose, Turkey and New Zealand.
Wendy Galgan, Editor of Assisi and Chair of the St. Francis College Department of English, says her selections for the journal are meant to "provoke an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world."
Two members of the St. Francis Community have their work in this current issue; photographs from Alexander Kustanovich (Technical Services Librarian and MFA Screenwriting Instructor) and a short story by English Professor Mitch Levenberg.
The mission of Assisi "is guided by the Franciscan values of spirituality, morality, social responsibility, and love for the Earth and her people, even when the writing is overtly 'not Catholic' in nature."
St. Francis College, founded in 1859 by the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, is located in Brooklyn Heights, N.Y. Since its founding, the College has pursued its Franciscan mission to provide an affordable, high-quality education to students from New York City's five boroughs and beyond.
