Loyalhanna Review Publication Party July 22, 2023

One of the longest-running literary magazines in the Laurel Highlands celebrated the publication of its 2023 edition. 

The Loyalhanna Review publication party took place on Saturday, July 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. All of our members and friends, plus the public, were invited and we had a nice crowd. Suggested donation was $15 at the door, but no guest is turned away. Authors and artists who contributed material to this year's magazine were comped, since without their hard work and creativity we wouldn't have this beautiful magazine to share with you. 

Each guest received a copy of the new Loyalhanna Review, hot off the presses and crammed full of writing and art that will knock your socks off, most of it created by local talent.
