Student Literary Journal Launches

by South University
April 15, 2013

We are pleased to introduce the inaugural edition of ASYNCHRONOUS, the new South University student literary and arts journal, which is intended to reflect the spirit of student creativity shared online. The journal showcases South University students’ writing, photography and artwork and provides an outlet for creative expression that cannot always be fully expressed in a classroom setting.

Asynchronous cover

The word asynchronous has been defined in different ways over time. Some older definitions of the word define it as occurring in a different geological time or belonging to a different time or era.

Today, we think of asynchronous as not occurring at the same time, not having the same period or phase or not concurrent in time—like our online classes. Similarly, creativity takes place without consideration of time or place, and the created works may belong to another era or be without fixed time.

I would like to express deep appreciation to those who took this germ of an idea and nurtured it to fruition. Michael Loyd Gray, Fiction Editor, and Ashley Johnson, Poetry Editor, are full-time faculty members in the South University English Department. Other former faculty contributed as well. Without the editors’ tireless efforts, this journal would never have made it to publication.

ASYNCHRONOUS represents an opportunity for students at South University to share their work with one another and the greater world at large. If you are a current South University student writer or artist, please consider sharing your work with the university community. If you are an appreciator of the arts, please enjoy the work you will find collected here. Following the release of our first issue, we invite you to share your thoughts about the journal and students’ writing and art by submitting feedback to asynchronous@southuniversity.edu.

Kind regards,

Dr. Donna B. Nalley
Program Director, English
South University
