ST. GEORGE – As part of Dixie State College’s Centennial Celebration, DSC will host a special evening of readings from its literary journal, The Southern Quill, on Saturday, on Nov. 6, at the St. George Tabernacle. Featuring poetry and prose produced by local writers, this free event will begin at 7 p.m., and is open to the public. Two of the evening’s featured readers will be Doug Keller, Poet Laureate of Kane County, and DSC President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld, who will recite one of his original works.
Published annually since 1950, The Southern Quill is committed to bringing attention to the arts in southern Utah. The journal publishes poetry, short fiction, non-fiction and artwork produced by Dixie State College students; it also welcomes material from writers and artists who live in Utah’s Washington and Kane Counties. Recognizing the historical and cultural links between St. George, Utah and Mesquite, Nevada, The Southern Quill has begun to accept submissions from residents of Clark County, Nevada, as well.
The Southern Quill is currently reviewing materials for potential inclusion in its 2011 edition. Contributors may submit up to three poems, three works of visual art and/or one short story. The Southern Quill now accepts electronic submissions only. Send materials to submissions@thesouthernquill.
