The F&M Alumni Arts Review is a printed publication, with a Web presence, which presents literary and visual works by Franklin & Marshall alumni. It is meant to be an inviting and inclusive way to engage alumni. We also hope the Review will inspire and enable our alums to continue to participate in lifelong learning.
Editor-in-Chief Sands Hall; artists in the various disciplines published by the Review; members of the Alumni Association, College Advancement, the Provost’s Office and the Philadelphia Alumni Writers House; and student interns who’ve demonstrated a high degree of aptitude in the arts comprise the Editorial Board. It’s a lively and disparate group and you can rest assured your work will be thoroughly and thoughtfully considered.
The Editorial Board meets to deliberate about the works that will ultimately be published in the pages and on the website of the Review.
