May 5, 2017, MANGILAO, GUAM – The sixteenth issue of the University of Guam’s literary journal Storyboard  features  a wonderful  collection  of poetry,  prose  and  visual  art  exploring  the  unique identity,  culture  and  history  of  the  people  of  Guam  and  the  greater  Micronesian  region.  The University of Guam Press and the UOG Division of English and Applied Linguistics will launch the journal on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the atrium of the UOG English and Communications building.
 
An editorial board of UOG faculty members reviewed 143 submissions and selected 25 pieces. “The content may vary – from family to solitude, from love lost to love made, from sea to land and back to sea again, from greetings to farewells, from peace and war to life and death – but all of these authors and artists share a passionate commitment to craft, language both verbal and visual, and, above all, the artistic process that we trust you will admire, criticize and enjoy,” described Storyboard 16 Editor David Gugin. “I for one am quite grateful for their contributions.”
 
Many of the writers and artists featured in Storyboard 16 will be present at the launch to share and discuss their work. The current and past issues of Storyboard will also be available for sale.
