|(Livermore, CA) - Students in English and Mass Communications at Las Positas College are seeking sponsors for the 42nd edition of their annual anthology, "Havik, The Las Positas College Journal of Arts, Literature, & Academic Writing." Sponsorships will help to cover the cost of publication and distribution, scheduled for May 2021 prior to the virtual Literary Arts Festival on May 8.
The student-produced anthology showcases original, unpublished work from emerging local and international writers and artists, including Las Positas students. "Havik" editors will honor the best pieces in each category with a small monetary prize. Categories in the 2021 edition include fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, art and photography, experimental work and academic nonfiction.
"Students in our literary journal classes overcame many challenges to maintain the long-standing tradition of producing 'Havik," said Editor in Chief Lara Abreu. "For the second year in a row, 'Havik' will be produced remotely. Together we have selected a diverse collection of works from among the more than 500 submissions."
Student editors plan to hold a virtual release ceremony in conjunction with the Las Positas College Literary Arts Festival on May 8, 2021 and to mail the book to submitters prior to the ceremony.
Sponsors of "Havik" will be listed in the published journal, and each will receive at least one published copy. A showcase of last year's edition, "Havik 2020: Homeward" as well as additional information about sponsorships is available on our student designed website. The sponsorship form is attached.
Registration for the Literary Arts Festival is available online through Eventbrite. For more information about the festival, please visit the LPC Literary Arts Festival webpage.

|About Las Positas College Performing Arts
The Las Positas College Performing Arts program is designed to provide knowledge, training, and practical experience in a variety of areas which can be used in continuing participation and appreciation of theater, music, dance, and communication studies throughout life. We offer a nurturing and personalized educational environment for all students who wish to pursue their passions in performance.
YOU can help keep Theater Arts possible for our students. Your ticket purchase can provide valuable scholarships and program funds for keeping our theater program healthy, so that we can provide theatrical opportunities for our students and communities. With the cancellation of our last three shows, due to Covid-19, our program has lost potential revenue of more than $10,000; coupled with Statewide budget cuts to education projected to impact colleges for the next 5 years, we are desperate for your help... and every little bit helps.
We are hoping to ensure our next season is as powerful and professional as our students and community deserve. Keep the arts alive, one ticket at a time!
