Welcome Fall 2013

Hey everyone! Welcome to a fresh fall start at Hunter College. We have some exciting new people on board at Olivetree Review that we think will have a great effect on the publication. We will also start sending out weekly newsletters after you sign our Student Contact Form. With the newsletter, you'll get the latest information on special events, weekly workshops, and all the new ways to participate in Olivetree. We will also be doing special contests in Art, Prose (Fiction/Non-Fiction), Poetry, and Drama--information TBA. In addition, there is a whole new layout for the office (TH212) with a designated work space and lounge area. Hope to see you there soon!

And don't forget to submit. Deadline is December 1, 2013!
