SMC magazine contributors share work at reading

first_img“Chimes,” the biannual art and literary magazine of Saint Mary’s College, will be released next week.  The magazine features various creative works from Saint Mary’s faculty and students ranging from first years to seniors.  Senior and co-editor Laura Corrigan said many students have two pieces in the magazine, which is the maximum accepted per student. Corrigan said she hopes the Saint Mary’s community will appreciate the pieces in this year’s edition. “We hope people will read and enjoy all of the pieces accepted this year and will be encouraged to submit next year,” Corrigan said.  “We also hope the writers’ hard work and creativity is accessible for others to enjoy.” Haemmerle said “Chimes” has had a long history – the first issue of the magazine was published in September of 1892. “The magazine has developed from being primarily a literary magazine to include art work as well,” Haemmerle said. “It also is published digitally on the ‘Chimes’ website.”  Haemmerle said that there were 36 poetry submissions this year, 19 of which were chosen for publication.  A chapbook was chosen as well, she said. The magazine received 22 fiction submissions, 10 of these were chosen, she said. Junior Landess Kearns said she is very excited about her poem, which will be published in this year’s edition. “I was thrilled when they chose my poem,” Kearns said. “It always it such an accomplishment to have work recognized by others, and I think that “Chimes” does a great job at selecting a wide variety of student pieces.” Corrigan said students and professors read both fiction and non-fiction pieces during the first official “Chimes” reading Thursday night in Spes Unica Hall at Saint Mary’s. Corrigan said attendance at the reading by both students and professors was better than expected. Sophomore Maria Monreal, senior Elizabeth Elsbach and sophomore Anna Fanelli read their pieces at Thursday’s gathering, where other writers shared their work as well. Elsbach said she has enjoyed being published in the “Chimes” multiple times through her years at Saint Mary’s, and likes seeing the literary talent in the community. She shared one of her poems at Thurday’s event, Elsbach said. “I read one of my poems called ‘Grinding the dregs’ at the ‘Chimes’ event,” Elsbach said. “It’s about sexuality and how people exploit it.  It’s always a pleasure to be chosen.” Senior Rose Franzen said she read one of her fictional short stories, entitled “My Brother’s Keeper,” about her brother coming back from active duty. She said she enjoyed sharing the story with others interested in art and creative writing. “I loved the reading last night because it is fun to share a creative piece with other people who love literature and art like I do,” Franzen said. Fanelli, a Humanistic Studies and German major, said that she enjoyed hearing the work of students from various majors. “I was shocked when one of the girls was a Biology major,” Fanelli said.  “It’s cool that not only English majors take part in this publication.”last_img read more

Sam Allardyce urges Jermain Defoe to be ready for Sunderland derby heroics again

first_img The 61-year-old said: “Every player at the football club who is not playing on a regular basis wants to play. Like Jermain said, he didn’t come here to sit on the bench. All the players who are here haven’t come here to sit on the bench. “But when you talk about 22 outfield players in the squad these days, some of them unfortunately don’t play as regularly as others, so what I would say is those who get the chance make sure you grasp it when you get it. “If you grab that chance then and you impress me, it’s going to give you the opportunity to be selected for the first team in the next game.” Sunday’s game sees Allardyce go head to head with Newcastle boss Steve McClaren, the man who denied him Carling Cup glory in 2004 when the pair were in charge at Bolton and Middlesbrough respectively, and then got the England job he coveted a little more than two years later. However, he insists that the derby is not about he and McClaren, nor his brief spell in charge at St James’ Park, although he admits victory this weekend would be sweet as the Black Cats attempt to secure a sixth successive win over Newcastle and in the process, make him the fourth manager in a row to beat the old enemy in his second game at the helm. Allardyce said with a smile: “If history follows itself, it’s what’s going to happen. That’s what I hope, anyway. It’s got very little to do with me, it’s down to fate the fact that this run carries on. “It’s quite bizarre to say that they’ve won five on the trot and telling me the last three managers’ second game was against Newcastle and they had all lost the first one and won the second one. “I’m just hoping that it continues to follow on this Sunday.” Meanwhile, Allardyce confirmed that Nigeria international striker Chinedu Obasi is training with the club after leaving Schalke during the summer following a bad leg fracture. He said: “We’ll make a judgement next week.” The 33-year-old striker admitted earlier this week that he is not happy sitting on the bench for the club he joined from Toronto in January after being named only among the substitutes for Allardyce’s first game in charge, last Saturday’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at West Brom. Defoe blasted himself into the affections of the Black Cats faithful in April when his stunning volley handed the club a 1-0 derby victory over Newcastle, but while he may find himself outside the starting XI once again as the Magpies return to Wearside on Sunday, Allardyce has told him he could still have a major role to play. Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has told last season’s derby hero Jermain Defoe to force his way back into his plans by doing the same if he gets a chance this Sunday. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
