The Mercyhurst Literary Festival concludes with an event celebrating the creative work of Mercyhurst students. From the Latin word for “light” and “opening,” Lumen is Mercyhurst’s student literary and fine arts magazine. Entirely student-produced, Lumen consistently wins awards for its content and design. The evening also features presentation of the P. Barry McAndrew Writing Awards for the three best examples of student creative writing and the best critical essay on literature. Students are also invited to share their works during an open mic session. The event is free and open to the public. For information, contact Dr. Jeff Roessner at email@example.com.
