Vancouver  – WSU Vancouver announces the release of the 2009 edition of the Salmon Creek Journal.

The SCJ is a publication featuring blind juried works by students, faculty, staff, and alumni of WSU Vancouver representing three genres: prose, poetry and artwork. SCJ does not accept work previously published in magazines, journals, anthologies or ‘zines, in print or online.
 
Refreshments will be available and three $100 prizes awarded for each genre:
 
– For poetry, Joe Pitkin for “Office Poem”
– For visual arts, Michael Dunn for “American Falls-Niagara Falls”
– For prose, Byron Nalos for “Jackpot”
 
There will be a visual arts presentation and authors will read their work. The contributing authors and visual artists will take turns rotating through a book signing table and KOUG radio will broadcast live from the event.
