We Know It’s Cold…

But hang in there, we’re almost to the weekend!












Thursday can feel like the longest day of the week. There are longer classes, end-of-the-week deadlines are coming up, and Friday couldn’t feel farther away. But you’re only one day away from Friday and that means you’re one week closer to the end of the semester (which also means SNAPS)! So hang in there, and stay tuned, we’ve got a lot of exciting things coming up.

Like us on Facebook and keep up-to-date with all of our latest news and announcements!

Friday at The Circle!

Happy Friday!

In honour of Black History month, we would like to share some wisdom from the famous Gordon Parks.

Gordon Parks was the first African-American photographer for Vogue and Life magazines.

The best thing to remember while you are out there taking great photos is, in the words of Gordon Parks himself; “The subject matter is so much more important than the photographer.

Meet Stone Phillips!

Everyone, meet Stone. Stone, meet everyone.


Here’s a preview of Stone and the conversation we had, if you want one: picture a sloth on Twitter, in outer space, listening to “With a Little Help From My Friends” by The Beatles while dreaming of being in Australia.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Stone Phillips, our very own Fiction Section Editor, on a higher level this week. He’s a hard worker with a very fun spirit. Say hi!

What is your position at The Circle?
I am the fiction section editor.

What do you think this position has done for your experience in college and for future work?
The position has allowed me to better develop skills working with a team. The submissions we get have also inspired me to work harder as a writer.

What would your life theme song be? Why?
With a Little Help from My Friends by the Beatles. Not an original choice I know, but my friends have gotten me out of some bad situations.

What social media (Tumblr, Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, etc.) would you say best fits your personality?
I don’t really use it anymore, but I guess Twitter. It’s short, simple, and to the point.

Lets say you had the choice to be anything in the world, what would you be?
Well I want to be a writer, but if it was anything I would want to be an astronaut or astrophysicist. I love anything to do with space.

Favorite animal?
A sloth. It moves at its own pace.

What is your hidden talent?
I don’t know if I really have one. I am able to retain a lot of details from any story. Books, movies, TV, anything. I guess that counts.

If you could give advice any celebrity, who would it be and what would you say?
I would tell Kanye he makes good music, but he is not a god.

What meme best describes your life?
Any Bad Luck Brian meme. Not being pessimistic, but weird things tend to happen to me.

If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go?
Australia. Always wanted to go there.

Throwback Thursday: “The Rabbit ‘Telula'” and “Dog Spit in Space”

It’s that time again, and this week we’re throwing back to one of our more… unconventional spreads, featuring “The Rabbit ‘Telula'” by Doug Walters and “Dog Spit in Space” by Emily Quinn, both from the Spring 2013 issue. We love the pairing of a rather mystical nature poem with such an odd, surreal oil painting!

The staff is staying busy putting together our Fall issue, so stay tuned for updates on our progress, sneak peeks of the new edition, and event announcements!
