The virtual launch of Limestone University’s 2020 and 2021 editions of “The Candelabra” will be held on Friday, April 23, at 5 p.m.

The launch of Limestone’s art and literary magazine will feature two-minute readings and artist talks from contributors.

“We hope you will make an evening of it by serving yourself some food and drink and settling in for a lovely hour of art, literature, and celebration,” said Erin Pushman, Limestone professor of English. “I am always honored to edit ‘The Candelabra’ because working with the student editors provides them with real-world experience, and accepting submissions from our students and alumni is a reminder of the talent and diversity among the voices within the Limestone community.”

Pushman added that while COVID-19 has slowed down many publications in the world of literary and visual arts, Limestone has remained committed to publishing “The Candelabra,” despite the complications brought on by the pandemic.

“We continue to be inspired by the multitude of voices that are contained within our charming campus,” said Limestone President Dr. Darrell Parker. “Between the pages, you will find a publication that is relevant, challenging, stimulating, and inclusive of our diverse range of perspectives.”
