Mount St. Joseph University Junior English major, Andrea Elchynski was published in the annual poetry and visual art anthology “for a better world 2015.”

The members of the editorial committee reviewed poems by 63 greater Cincinnati artists and Elchynski’s poem Beast of the Southern Wild, was selected for publication.

“I was very excited to have my work published,” says Elchynski. “As an inspiring writer it's always rewarding to have your work published because that means it is not only important to you, but to other people as well.”

Each poem will be paired with an artist that will visually draw the written work. The work will be displayed at The Art Academy of Cincinnati "SOS ART 2015” event May 29-June 7, 2015.

In terms of the future, Elchynski says, “I'd like to continue writing and publish more work and make a difference in someone's life.”
