University of Minnesota Crookston freshman, Janie Tormanen, recently received notice that three of her poems have been accepted for publication. Tormanen is a communication major and writing minor from Menahga, Minn. and plays women's basketball for the Golden Eagles. 

Tormanen's three poems, "The Promise", "Teenage Girls", and "Choking on Your Affection" will be published in the Spring 2023 issue of Beyond Thought, an undergraduate creative arts journal based at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas. 

"I'm excited to expand and I'm honored Beyond Thought wants to associate their journal with my work," said Tormanen. "My poetry means a lot to me and represents a lot about me. I'm so blessed for this publication that will give my work the potential to mean something to others as well."
