Update on the magazine regarding COVID19 prevention

Unfortunately, the Minor Bird Launch Party for this year has been canceled as a precautionary measure against COVID19.

However, publication for the magazine is going ahead as planned! Free copies of the Minor Bird will be available around Chatham’s campus in places like the library, Lindsay House, the ADC, Student Affairs, and CafĂ© Rachel. The pdf version will also be posted on this website!

If you will not be on campus when the magazine is published but still want a physical copy, you can choose to wait until fall or receive a copy in the mail. If you decide to get a copy sent out, you will have to pay for shipping and handling. Payments are accepted via PayPal, Cashapp, or Venmo. When sending money, please let us know the address as well as what name to use on the package, so we can avoid accidentally outing trans folks. Shipping prices are based on mailing priority to California and the weight of past issues. They are as follows:

1 – $5

2 – $5.75

3 – $9.60

4 – $14.90

Venmo: Iyanna-Armwood

Cashapp: $IyannaArmwood

Paypal: iyanna.armwood@gmail.com


Two final notes: the SOAR Award recipients will be announced via email in the coming weeks, and Executive Board applications are open until Sunday, April 5th!

Thank you, and stay safe!

Hot Off the Press: The Minor Bird 2019 Issue!

It’s bittersweet, but the end of the 2018-2019 school year is upon us and with that, The Minor Bird’s 90th issue is now officially in print! Thank you to all who were a part of this project, whether you submitted your work, dedicated long evenings to serving on the Editorial Board, came to our Launch Party, or simply supported us along the way. We could not have ended the year with such an amazing issue without our Chatham community, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

With that said, be sure to pick up your free copy of the Minor Bird on campus! Copies are available in the library, Lindsay House, Cafe Rachel, and Student Affairs. This year’s article features incredible poetry, prose, and art from current students and Chatham alums, and you won’t want to miss it.

See you next year!
