UAS Ketchikan Students Published


May 05, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - Five University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan students have had their written work selected for inclusion in the 2005 edition of Tidal Echoes, the UAS literary journal that publishes art and writing.

Tidal Echoes celebrates the finest student writing and artwork UAS has to offer. While all three campuses of UAS were represented in this year's volume, Ketchikan students demonstrated an unusual range of literary virtuosity: both critical and narrative essays, poetry, and short fiction.

Leslie Chapel, a senior nearing the completion of her B.L.A., submitted "Streams of Time," a fiction piece that began as a creative writing class assignment three years ago. Thomas Grass, in the nursing program, submitted the only literary critical piece this year, "Homosexual Imagery in Robert Frost's 'Mending Wall'." Jennifer Bowers, a BLA major with emphases in psychology and communication, authored the poem "The Garage," and Shannon Slagle the poem "Psychological Segregation." Marie Mecham, in her first year of study at UAS, wrote the narrative essay "Do You See What I See?" for her English 110 portfolio. All are current or former students of English Professor Rod Landis.

Tidal Echoes is available for purchase at the University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan bookstore, located in the business office of the main campus, 2600 Seventh Avenue. It is also available for purchase on line at
