Tidepools launch party will offer awards, reading and pop-up art exhibit

PORT ANGELES — The 59th edition of Tidepools will be released on Thursday.

The public is invited to a launch party from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the ʔaʔk̓ʷustəƞáwt̓xʷ House of Learning, Peninsula College Longhouse on the Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

This event is free and open to the public. To reserve a free ticket, go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/639008771437.

Guests can help celebrate the winners of the Tidepools magazine contest and take a first peak at this year’s magazine. The Tidepools launch party will include a brief reading and pop-up exhibit featuring work in the current issue.

Tidepools Magazine has been published annually at Peninsula College since 1964 and features original art, photography, poetry, prose and music created by residents of the North Olympic Peninsula in Clallam and Jefferson counties.

Tidepools is created in collaboration by Peninsula College students who edit, design, lay out and publish the magazine while learning about publishing, marketing, community relations and gaining an appreciation of literature and the arts.

The magazine is made possible with support from the Associated Student Council, the Peninsula Daily News and The Buccaneer.

Look for Tidepools magazine in local shops across the Olympic Peninsula.
