“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it, we go nowhere." - Carl Sagan 

Bees, Students, Faculty Excellence

Espial is an accumulation of Green River College's creative culture in the form of an award-winning literary arts journal. The journal has been a part of the college’s history since the 1960's when it was the Green River Review. In 2002, the project became the Espial we know today.

With many successful years of production under its belt, we are excited about how Espial has evolved. Our goal is to spotlight and preserve a sense of place for the creative culture at Green River College each year. As per usual, you will see a fantastic compilation of literature and fine art from students, faculty, staff and alumni. All content, including cover, layout, and conceptual design are crafted by Green River students from idea to publication.

We encourage students, faculty, staff and alumni to submit works to be a part of the Espial experience. Moreover, if you want to join next year’s student staff to produce the journal you can register for ART150 or ENG239 for Spring Quarter.

For more information and to see digitized copies of previous years, please visit the Espial Website. Follow our Facebook page for updates and more!
