“Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” – Henry Van Dyke
Dear Students (past and present),

This is the FIRST call for sending in your creative writings/paintings for the fourth issue of Cornucopia. The fourth issue is being designed on a still grander scale, and we thank all of you who have sent in your articles thus far. We shall be acknowledging all of you shortly via email. The last date for receipt of your creative writings/paintings is Saturday, 08 December 2012. You may send in your entries to cornucopiamcc@gmail.com

Who can contribute: All students of MCC (past and present)

Guidelines: Cornucopia welcomes any original unpublished work that can spark human consciousness – appropriate, elegant, innovative and original. Kindly avoid sending in overtly/harshly critical articles/cartoons that violate the ethos and decorum of the Department/College.

Do not forget to key-in both your full name (and/or your pen name(s) if any), and mention specifically how you’d wish to be acknowledged in the name-line.

Viewing the Pre-final Copy: A pre-final copy of the fourth issue will be made available in the Department of English on Monday, 10 December 2012 from 10 am to 3 pm. All contributors are welcome to browse through the same and notify the Editorial team of changes/corrections, if any, straightaway.

Creative artists/Student Editors Wanted: Students who’ve got exposure to PageMaker/CorelDraw, with high creative quotient, to do the front/back cover page designs of Cornucopia are in demand. Rush to us with your credentials. We need you! Since this issue is multi-colour, we require cartoonists, who can adorn quite a few pages with creative funnies/sketches. Two dedicated professors (KA & PV) will be there to guide you.

We’re Hiring: Cornucopia requires student-editors who are good at type-writing/proof-reading, for page-designing, speedy type-writing and proof-reading of the first draft of all the entries. Two students have already expressed interest, and we shall be getting back to you shortly.

Cover Page Photograph: Students are welcome to send in photographs with good picture resolutions (with MCC as the setting, obviously!) for adorning the front and back covers of Cornucopia.

Release date: The current issue of Cornucopia  is scheduled for release on Tuesday, 21 December 2012 at a gala function befitting the event. Cash prizes for winners of the Quiz and the Creative Writing Competitions will be given on the occasion.

Past students of MCC, who have contributed to the third issue, in case you are in need of a copy, please send us your full postal address with phone no. We shall speed post a copy to you rightaway! Rest assured! It’s absolutely complimentary..! J
