An Evening with Shale: Conversations on UK's Literary Arts Journal

Shale is the University of Kentucky's own undergraduate literary arts journal. Comprised of fiction, poetry, and visual art from talented UK students, Shale is published once a semester to much fanfare. Part of that fanfare is the traditional reception, an event that is free to attend to an art-loving public. Students published in Shale, fans of the magazine, and a number of faculty members meet to celebrate another successfully assembled issue, as well as share their work in a public reading.

In Spring of 2014, Shale put together its most ambitious issue yet. The Arts & Sciences podcast team was on the scene to capture the moment and take part in the festivities. Here is a story of not just a UK publication, but of the people that keep it running. This is a story of how those people work together, overcome the difficulties in assembling a mass-produced piece of print media, and the reverence with which they see their art form.
