"The Saintly Review" Expands to the Colleges of the Fenway

For the first time, The Saintly Review, a literary magazine organized and curated by Emmanuel students, is accepting submissions from students from all four other Colleges of the Fenway schools. The submission deadline for the spring issue is April 21st.

While The Saintly Review has been accepting and publishing the work of Emmanuel College students since 2016, students from Wentworth Institute of Technology, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, MCPHS University and Simmons University are now welcome to share their creativity for a chance to be published in the publication.

“Due to the universally difficult times that we are currently living through, we wanted to open up a space for all COF students to express themselves artistically,” said Kailey Hinckley ’21, a member of the publication’s editorial board. “We felt that opening up this shared space could provide us with some collective healing through the power of prose, poetry, art, and more.”

Orchestrated each semester by students enrolled in the Emmanuel course, “Editing and Publishing a Literary Magazine,” The Saintly Review showcases a host of different art forms. The class is an extension of the well-established writing program at Emmanuel, working to teach students about the capstone of the writing process: publication. The class forms an editorial board with responsibilities that encourage teamwork and allows for practical experience in all aspects of the publishing process.

“Teaching this class has been amazing,” said Associate Professor of English Monique Adelle-Callahan. “The most incredible part of it is the ownership that students take over the magazine. The students are so involved in how the magazine is presented and are so driven to make it their own. Opening submissions to the COF is a perfect example of what it looks like to give students an idea and then the liberty to make it what they want and to see where they can go with it.”

The publication’s editorial board hopes to be able to host an in-person gathering next fall, at which students published in The Saintly Review and other members of the greater community will be able to celebrate the collective works.

This most recent edition of The Saintly Review will be available via the magazine’s website on or before May 10th and in print, per request. For more information on The Saintly Review, visit its Instagram page or send an email to thesaintlyreview@gmail.com.
