Scribendi hosts its annual Release Party on Friday, April 12, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The University of New Mexico in the UNM Honors Forum. The release party is to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of the contributors of the 2019 edition and for all the hard work put in by this year’s Scribendi staff.

Scribendi is an annual nonprofit magazine produced and published by students at the UNM Honors College since 1985. Scribendi receives about 600 creative works by students from nearly 900 Western Regional Honors Council (WRHC) and National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) schools.

"This year, we received an outstanding 560 submissions in our seven creative categories, which is the most submissions that Scribendi has ever received. I’m sure that the staff will agree with me when I say that choosing the published pieces was no easy task, as we received such exceptional work from honors students across the country," said Alyssa Aragon, editor in chief. "This year’s magazine features pieces about dreams, culture & heritage, and family memories. It also features beautiful photography and artwork in various mediums. With vibrant pink pantones and an editorial-like cover, this edition of Scribendi is unlike any Scribendi you’ve seen before."

Scribendi selects work through a blind-jury process. The staff takes pride in providing a forum for fellow undergraduate honors students to have a chance to publish their work- not only literature, visual art, photography, and other artwork, but also open media, which includes architecture, comics, fashion, film, music, and any other art form.

The Western Regional Honors Council (WRHC) gives annual awards and $250 prizes in the categories of creative nonfiction, open media, photography, poetry, short fiction, and visual art to WRHC students. Scribendi has also been awarded the prestigious National Pacemaker award once in 2006 and a second time in 2013.
