Work by Albert City student published in Spectrum

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Mallory Bjork, a student at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, is among 24 students who have had their writing or artwork published in Northwestern’s literary arts magazine, Spectrum.

The annual publication, sponsored by the English department, includes a selection of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction and artwork, chosen by a panel of students.

Bjork is a senior and English teaching major at Northwestern College. Her poems, “Our Time in Narnia,” “Mom Sings the Crucifixion,” “On Living Artfully” and “To My Unborn Sibling,” were published in Spectrum.

Bjork is the daughter of Chad and Julie Bjork of Albert City.

Winners from each category are determined through judging by an outside author.

The judge this year was Luke Hawley, associate professor of English at Dordt College and author of “The Birth of Birds” and “The Northwoods Hymnal.”
