Just released: 2016 Rocinante – a journal of art and literature

May 10, 2016

Warner Pacific Rocinante poemEnjoy the talents of Warner Pacific’s students, staff, and faculty in this year’s Rocinante.

The pieces in this journal represent the struggles that we all face. F. Scott Fitzgerald once said: ‘That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.’ We are all living unique lives, and our problems are different but we can relate to struggle, isolation, and oppression. This is what literature has always meant for me. Whether a piece was written last year, or a hundred years ago, there are themes to which I have been able to relate.

Art and literature force us to stop and think. A well-written text or a great piece of art winds itself into our minds and our hearts. Even a single line or idea can put down roots into a being and stick with us for Warner Pacific photo in Rocinante by K Coveyyears. I hope that every reader finds something in this journal that sticks with them. Know that you are not alone, know that you are not the only one who is struggling, and know that Warner Pacific is a place where your unique thoughts and ideas matter.”  —Hannah Mierow, Editor-in-Chief
