El Tintero Journal Launches Volume 3! Posted on April 17th, 2015 by

El Tintero de Gustavus is an online literary and cinematic journal written by students of Spanish at Gustavus Adolphus College. It features the original works created by students during their time abroad, here on campus, or in response to texts they have been exposed to in class. This volume featured: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, short film and photography.


This year’s editorial board, comprised of Dang Le (Public Accounting and Spanish ’16) who is the Editor in Chief (right) and Saskia Raether (Biology and Spanish ’15) who is Copyeditor (left), launched Volume 3 on Tuesday, April 13th in 128 Confer Hall at 6:00 p.m. The journal volume was dedicated to Pablo Neruda because of his commitment to social justice and his resonating message of tolerance and respect toward others.

During the event, Profesor Carlos Mejía Suarez offered an homage to the Latin American poet, in which he reminded the audience that this was the twentieth century poet who taught readers what it meant to be Latin American.

Shortly after, published authors read their work to an attentive audience, comprised of students and faculty.

The editorial board for the 2015-16 academic year was announced at the end of the event:

Andrew Malo (Education and Spanish ’17) – Editor in Chief

Nate Long (Political Science and Spanish ’16) – Marketing

Sara Blinn (Biology and Spanish ’17) – Design

James Ramsburg (GWS and Spanish ’18) – Substantive Editor

Gisel Murillo (Theater & Comm. Studies ’18) – Copyeditor

Emma Jasnoch (LALACS and Spanish ’16) – Copyeditor (spring ’16)

Dang Le will continue in the board as mentor and consult for Volume 4, which will be launched next spring.
