Students and Teachers celebrate the launch of Venture Online vol. 7

On Wednesday November 28, first-year student writers and artists gathered with faculty, staff, family, and friends to celebrate the publication of the seventh edition of Venture Online, the University of Mississippi’s first-year writing magazine. Venture Online, under the direction of Milly West and Emily Cooley, both instructors in the CWR, is a venue to showcase the many creative talents of University of Mississippi students.

The magazine, supported jointly by the Center for Writing and Rhetoric and the Division of Outreach, is published each semester of the regular academic year. Any first-year student may submit writing or artwork to the magazine, and a group of student editors (many of whom have published previously in Venture) decide which works to publish. The student editors work with Milly West and Emily Cooley to assemble the magazine’s contents, and Division of Outreach Graphic Designer Larry Agostinelli develops the magazine itself.

The CWR is proud of our students who were published in Venture, and excited about the enthusiasm of our instructors and staff in promoting the magazine and encouraging students to submit work.
