Fayetteville High School students run the literary magazine, Connotations,  a collection of student’s writing, art, and photography. Every year, a staff is selected, and for the first semester, staff receive submissions that they consider, or reject, in anonymous review. In the second semester, students then design, and publish the annual magazine.

Some contributors and staff members of Connotations will read selections from the upcoming annual at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at Nightbird Books in Fayetteville.

Connotations is a testament to the creativity that resides in Fayetteville High School, and has received numerous awards from both the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association.

Connotations is proud to be in its 35th year, and will be publishing the annual magazine this spring.  It will be available for sale later this spring.

The March 27 feature program will be preceded and followed by open-mic sessions, where any audience member can present works of verse or prose, their own or that of others, within a strict 4-minute time limit.

The program as always is free, but donations are welcome. While all ages are welcome, spoken-word performers sometimes use adult themes and words, so parents are cautioned.

The monthly presentation ends by 8:30. The bookstore is open during our time for browsing and purchases.
