Happy second semester! Spring is a particularly exciting time for the Quarry, since we’ll be accepting student submissions and compiling this year’s edition of the magazine! We are so excited to read and review all of your wonderful works this spring, and to witness the diversity of talent and artistry of St. Olaf students.

Our submission period is February 14th - March 3rd, and our documentation day is Friday, March 1st. We accept all kinds of art and literature; for more detailed guidelines, check out the updated Submit page on the website. We will be tabling at the spring co-curricular fair on Monday, February 11 (this Monday!), which will be a great opportunity to ask any of the Quarry editors about the submission process.

We look forward to receiving all your submissions—good luck and happy creating!

Cheers to a Great Year!

Thank you to all who submitted work, attended events, applied to become an editor, and created with us in the 2016-2017 school year! We are really proud of not only the fantastic magazine we created together, but of the innovation, vulnerability, and boldness of the St. Olaf campus as a whole.
