Thank you very much to all the attendees of the Promethean launch event. Thanks to all the readers and audience. You were all amazing. You all get an A++ from this ol' journal.

If you google the definition of Promethean, you'll find this: "The definition of Promethean is acting like Prometheus, a Titan in Greek mythology, by being creative and original." The Promethean Journal was created with this purpose in mind --- to give a platform to creative and original voices. It was created so we, as a community and individuals, embrace our uniqueness and likeness. We have built a community that uplifts voices on campus and, hopefully, everywhere. There is power in words, that is why the old adage exists, "The pen is mightier than the sword." Therefore, it is with pleasure that we announce the launch of the new issue of Promethean. Thank you to the writers for submitting their work. Thank you to those that submitted their work but were not able to make it into this issue (You should be proud of your accomplishment, not everyone can write a story or a poem, and not everyone that starts one finishes it. We hope to see you in the next issue.) Thank you to our loyal readers. Thank you to the editors and faculty behind this issue. Finally, thank you to the CCNY community. You all made this possible. The launch will take place at 6 p.m. Monday the 13th (tomorrow) until 9 p.m. in NAC 6/218. Look at the flyer, read it, and share the news. There is FREE FOOD!๐Ÿ˜‹ See you tomorrow.๐Ÿฅฐ

Update on the 2019 issue of Promethean: Ah! Many of you must have been waiting for this. I am happy to announce that the new issue will come out the week of May 12th to coincide with the English Department Award Ceremony. Will keep you all posted with more news on it. Congrats to all the writers in this issue!

So bookcon is coming up around June/July this year! Some think itโ€™s a space for celebrating love for books and literature. But some think itโ€™s all about commercializing books and a way for publishers to endorse their brand.
What do you think? Would you go to bookcon? Let us know in the comments section below!!! ๐Ÿค“

Itโ€™s midnight, and Iโ€™m sure the writer in you might be awakened ๐Ÿค“ (or not, you might be a day person...)
Just wanted to give a word of encouragement:

write with your heart and soul and believe in your work... you might fail but getting back up is the key ๐Ÿ”‘
So, happy writing!

What kind of a writer are you?

Interesting fact: Today we celebrate National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, Great American Smokeout Day, America Recycles Day, National Philanthropy Day, National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day, National Bundt Cake Day, National Rural Health Day, and National Raisin Bran Cereal Day. Which national day are you or one of your characters more likely or unlikely to celebrate? I will put all my weight in celebrating National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day. I would definitely flee far away from Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. You?

Promethean's first ever Writers Showcase took place last Friday night. Incredible artists read their work, and it was terrific. They gifted us with poignant stories and poems that are relatable and significant. Thank you, Natalia Rodriguez, Grace Kearney, Patrick Pawlowski, Allia Matta, Fernanda DeSouza, and Diana Fu for giving us a glimpse of your world. Thanks to all attendees for coming in even when it was raining cats and dogs. Thank you to KGB Bar for the space and the drinks *wink*. And shamelessly, I would like to say thanks to Promethean and James for making this possible.

Here are some pictures to remember the night.

P.S. Start submitting your work at Promethean.submittable.com. The deadline is November 16th.
