with a blistered collar

Interregnum XIII: "Equality" Is Over ... So What Should I Read Next?

"Racial equality is always an important issue for our community to grapple with, of course, but the ugliness and overt racism in our national political discourse this year made it seem even more essential."

As we wait to hear the Interregnum theme for the 2017-18 school year, Dr. Ethan Campbell reflects on this last theme. Follow the link below to read more: http://www.thetroubadourmag.com/interregnum-xiii-equality-is-over-so-what-should-i-read-next.

The Interregnum committee’s choice of “Equality” as The King’s College’s theme for 2016-17 turned out to be prescient in many ways. Racial equality is always an important issue for our community to grapple with, of course, but the ugliness and overt racism in our national political discourse this y...

WE ARE SO EXCITED to partner with CURE TKC this Friday.

We invite all writers and musicians on campus to come perform their original work. If you are interested in performing, email [email protected].

All performers must in some way consider the theme HEALING--it is CURE's mission that makes us reflect on moments of healing in our own ordinary lives.

This event is not only an opportunity to see what the writers and other artists in our community are up to, but also to support an important cause. It's FREE, but donations are welcome, and all proceeds will go to CURE and help children in underserved nations receive professional medical care and hear the word of Christ.

We love you a lot and hope to see you there

Clearly, addressing you
So you could hear him.
Not so he could hear

Behold our first second annual series: Morning Breath. Last February, we asked you to tell us what this season of romance means to you, and this year we're awaiting another round of your stories. As always, your tales of love and strife need not make the season explicit, but they must evoke it. We're after your original work, in the form of poetry, fiction or non-fiction, that reflects in some way on luv and what it means to you. Now accepting submissions!! Email them to [email protected].

Also, huge thanks to Reed Schaeffer Stanton and May Overmyer for letting us snap some pictures of them for the series!
