We’re Hiring!

Attention University of Houston students:

Glass Mountain is currently taking applications for staff positions! We are in need of dedicated, organized students who love to read and are committed to publishing their peers. Duties will entail reading and ranking submissions, meeting a few times per semester, being a cheerleader for Glass Mountain, and generally being outstanding.

Download this application, fill it out, and email it back to us at glassmountaineditors@gmail.com or drop it off in the Glass Mountain mailbox in the English Department office of the Roy Cullen Building.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Join us for Drink Houston Better @ Poison Girl, 2/6/2011!

If you’re like us, you don’t even know who’s playing in the Super Bowl, much less when it is. (Well, our managing editor does. Sorry James.) But if you like Glass Mountain, and you like charity events, and hey – if you like to drink, drink with us at the Drink Houston Better event, Superbowl Sunday, February 6th, 2011!

Hang out with the Glass Mountain staff while we knock back some brewskies and occasionally glance over at the television when someone in tights runs a few feet. Hey – it gets people to the best bar in Houston, and it benefits the journal, you know, the one that’s still committed to publishing you?

See you there!

We Are Proud to Announce the 2010 Winners of the Robertson Prize

On June 7th through 12, Boldface 2010 went into full swing. To the casual passerby, a crowd of students in plaid shirts and jeans gathered in tightly knit groups. Some laughed hysterically, others read to themselves in a corner next to a plant, and still others, sipping coffee, wove in and out of conversations that discussed “caesura” and “metonymy” in that shared language so vital to understanding craft. Such is the character of Glass Mountain‘s Boldface Conference for Emerging Writer – a scattering of minds in that small sunlit space between the Honors College and Special Collections.

But the real treasure of Boldface is the emergence of the writing community: that rare communion that is found in a conversation about voice, aesthetic, line breaks, and narrative structure. Graduate-level, undergraduate level, published, unpublished, editor, struggling writer – all in conversation about how strange it is to be alive.

You can still hear it.

We asked the participants of the 2010 Boldface Conference to submit their revised work to the Robertson Prize Contest for Excellence in Creative Writing. It is our pleasure to announce the winners and runners up in each genre:

In Poetry, Laura Theobald, for “There Was a War”

Runners Up: Derrick Austin, “Sleeping Under an Oak”

Nicole Walker, “Full Volume”

In Fiction, Heather Pedoto, for her novel excerpt

Runners up: Stan Le, “Visions of Elijah”

Wesley Buhler, “Places Called Home”

Congratulations!

Did you see us at East End?

If you weren’t at the East End Arts Festival, we missed you! And you  missed a killer reading by our killer Robertson Prize winners and staff, some of the many creative voices in our Houston arts community. Glass Mountain and friends took the stage for an hour inside Bohemeo’s and encored outdoors. We read to the sounds of a live mariachi band and a bounce house full of niños, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Special thanks to Tina Richardson, one of our alumni staff, who was ready to wing it with poetry from her purse, and of course, to Bohemeo’s for giving our emerging writers a chance behind the microphone.

Join us at East End Cultural Fest!

Join us on Sunday, October 17th at Bohemeo’s, where Glass Mountain will be reading for the East End Cultural Arts Festival. The event lasts all day, and Glass Mountain will be holding a reading on stage from 2pm-3pm.

Bohemeo’s is located in the Tlaquepaque Market in the heart of East End, one of the earliest historic Houston settlements and home to the two oldest Hispanic neighborhoods, Magnolia Park and Second Ward. Complete with its own fountain, Bohemeo’s also boasts an ample outdoor stage and can cook up some delicious sandwiches, pizzas, and fish tacos, along with a wide selection of coffee, beer and wine. Come by, hang out, listen to some poetry and live music, and enjoy life.
