Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has published the eighth edition of its literary and arts anthology, The Thunderbird Review. The journal features writing and art submitted by students from Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College and residents of northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin communities. The Thunderbird Review anthology provides an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in writing, editing, and publishing at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.
The journal received many high-quality submissions this year from both established and emerging writers and artists. The editorial staff spent hours poring over and discussing all the wonderful writing and art.
The student editors this year were Alberto Torres, Dakota Burton, Katherine Welman, and Janice Rarick, and they worked with Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College English instructor Darci Schummer to produce the publication.
This year’s edition is different from those of past years in that it is being printed in color. Due to the high number of exceptional art submissions, the editors elected to have the anthology feature its pages in color.
Among the artists featured in the journal are Charlie May, Anna Granholm, Kaitlyn Rain Hagenah, J.M.S. Swenson, and James Springett. Featured writers include Suzanne VanHoever, Jabari Simpson, Deborah Rasmussen, Jan Chronister, and Liz Minette.
In lieu of an in-person celebration for latest edition of The Thunderbird Review, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will celebrate the release virtually by featuring contributors reading from their work and publishing images of the selected artwork on the Facebook page for The Thunderbird Review at beginning Monday, May 11, 2020.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
