Aerie 2013

    We are currently accepting submissions for Aerie 2013! Deadline is October 12th for all poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama, and experimental entries.

Aerie '12 is out!

See more pictures from the launch

    We're happy to announce the release of Aerie '12! The release party was put together by Mandy "Jay Gatsby" Maskell and featured baked goods from various editors, photo-ops, and readings from the new issue.

    The release is bittersweet as it marks the end of the current editorial staff, but we're extremely proud of what we've created. Aerie was our baby and we nurtured it and guided its development since September 2011. The process of reviewing submissions was a challenge as we received so many quality pieces. However, when we opened the first box of journals last night, we were overjoyed to see that Aerie was exactly how we'd envisioned it.

    There are several editors who intend on returning next year, but we'd like to thank those editors who are graduating for their diligence, passion, and creativity in elevating Aerie to the highest branch. It's a sexy issue, but is still as dignified and refined as its predecessors. We hope you enjoy reading it, cover to cover. Of course, if you're reading this, we'd like to thank you too for supporting us in our passion for literature.

    Finally, we'd like to thank Dr. Benjamin Grossberg for making this happen. Your enthusiasm and persistence was invaluable to the creation of this historic issue. There wouldn't be an Aerie of this caliber without you.

-William DiRienzo

April Fools!

    No, we're not going to be a part of Hartbeat Magazine. You probably weren't concerned though.

    The Aerie Editorial Staff is having its release party on April 5th at 7:00PM in Auerbach Auditorium. This won't be a lamefest with ten editors staring at their shoes. We're going to have some fun! There'll be millions of delicious treats including some Aerie-specific themed ones. Bring your friends, bring your moms, and bring your appetite, we're having a party!

    We'll have some group activities to do too, if you're so inclined. You'll be able to take your picture in front of the Cowboys and Indians blanket just like the cover of the 2012 Aerie. Stockings are optional.

    After Aerie's festivities, we will be announcing the results of this year's writing contest. With so many talented writers involved, it'd be unwise to make any bets. But please, if you're looking to hand your money over to someone, Aerie's hand is always extended.

   There'll also be a story slam put on by the Drama Club following all of this so be sure to pace yourselves and drink responsibly. No, we're not serving alcohol. Sorry.

Aerie 2012 is coming!

   Proofs are in and we're too excited to keep a secret. Be sure to check back here and on our Facebook page for further updates and information on the release party.

Poetry Slam tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11th

    With great prizes for the winners including gift certificates to Moes, Akua Ba Fitness and more!

   After the Poetry Slam there will be an open mic for anyone wishing to read their writing in a more casual atmosphere. Engage in some friendly competition or just come to listen, we'd love to see you there!

Subission Deadline

    While the official deadline is tonight at midnight, we'll still be accepting submissions through next week. That way, if the deadline snuck up on you, consider this your grace period! Please don't be afraid to submit your work, we'd love to read it!

    We've also been featured on STN! Check it out!

October 6th, 2011

    Though the literary submission deadline is now only two days away, we've already received a substantial amount of work! We're extremely grateful for your generosity; thanks to everyone who has supported Aerie through our bake sale, raffle ticket sales, and to all the writers and artists who have submitted work, Aerie '12 is poised for excellence.

    Also, we'd like to let you know that while physical copies of past issues are available in the English Department, we're working on making them available to read online. For a preview of what's to come, check out the 2006 Aerie . These will all be accessible on the 'Past Volumes' page.

    Thank you again,
       Aerie Staff
