‘Those which must be written,’ a definition University of New Mexico Associate Professor, Amaris Ketcham doesn’t take lightly as it represents UNM’s very own student produced and nationally distributed Arts & Literary magazine, Scribendi.

Ketcham, also the magazine’s faculty advisor, said she’s dedicated to ensuring that student success through the process of investigation is always highlighted in each publication.

“Writing is an investigation,” Ketcham said. “It’s a way to question, ‘What do I know and how do I know it?’”

Scribendi’s history dates back to the 1980s. It now publishes creative work from undergraduate Honors students from more than 200 institutions in the Western Region.

Ketcham said while a lot of her time is spent working with students to create and publish the annual magazine, her passion and appreciation of the written word didn’t begin with Scribendi. In fact, she said she realized it while studying Anthropology as a UNM undergraduate student.
