The subject line of Angela Spoto’s email to her writing professor, Davis Schneiderman, said it all: “I’m Published!” it exclaimed.
Angie’s poems “Chinese Food” and “Causing the Housing Bubble” were chosen for issue number 15 of Alice Blue Review, an online poetry journal well known in writing circles.
“This is my first publication outside of student or young adult publications, so I’m very excited,” said Angie of her accomplishment.
Angie is an English major with a concentration in writing (her second major is in business). Lake Forest College boasts a rich writing culture supported by writing contests and scholarships, student-run publications, the Lake Forest Press, and the Writers’ Guild.
“Whether you are interested in foreign-language, creative, scientific, non-fiction, or experimental writing, our community is sure to have a place for you,” said Dawn Abt-Perkins, director of writing programs at the College.
Angie also has two stories forthcoming in the literary journals Toad Suck Review and kill author. In her email to Professor Schneiderman she wrote, “I wrote these two stories in your fiction class, so, thanks!”
