The cover art is “Songbird Sunset” by Jacqueline Orosco of Neosho. “I love watercolors, pen art, and birds. This painting was the happy combination of all three,” she said. Orosco is a Crowder alumna with nearly 20 winning Crowder Quill entries spanning the last five years. She takes inspiration from daily life and gravitates towards deeply personal work that exposes the human psyche. She has a young daughter and is currently working as a nurse.
