An open letter to Knox from Quiver

Mark your calendars for Friday, November 6! In Ferris Lounge at 5:00, Quiver will be having its reception for this term’s edition of Diminished Capacity, Knox’s online humor magazine. Food will be served while authors read from their works. It will be a great evening of student-generated humor and fun.

For those who don’t know, Quiver is Knox’s genre publication. The children’s literature magazine, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod, comes out in Winter Term, while The Third Level, the sci-fi and fantasy magazine, is in the spring. This term the Quiver editors received many stellar submissions for Diminished Capacity. Humor is abundant at Knox, from classes about humor writing, to housing entirely devoted to the art of making people laugh. Diminished Capacity offers the best of Knox’s funny creative endeavors.

Quiver is one hundred percent student run. We give feedback to each and every contributor, regardless of whether or not the piece was accepted. Apart from writing, we also accept submissions of visual artwork and audio and video recordings, as well. With an online magazine, there are endless opportunities, and we want to take advantage of them! Editors also regularly contribute book reviews, if you are interested in further reading within the genre. At quiver.knox.edu, you can check out past issues, find recommendations, and learn more about the publication and the staff.

For this term, we put together a great issue of Diminished Capacity. We hope to see a lot of you at the reception on November 6, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future!
