Alumni Are Invited to Show Their Creativity

SECOND ESSENCE, Seattle Pacific University’s annual literary and arts journal, invites alumni to join students, faculty and staff in submitting original works. The journal’s student editors and designers encourage submissions of music, poetry, art, photography, prose and creative nonfiction.

“Over the past few years, the journal has been expanding,” says 2002–03 Editor Joy Radford. For instance, Second Essence used to be confined to the printed page. Now part of the package is a CD of original music.

For more information, send e-mail to, call 206/281-2120, or mail your submissions to Second Essence, Seattle Pacific University, 3307 Third Avenue West, Seattle, Washington 98119. The deadline for submitting material to the 2002–03 journal is February 21, 2003.
