Georgia College has its own undergraduate literary and creative arts journal, The Peacock’s Feet. Published annually, the journal showcases GCSU undergraduate students' talents without costing students a penny. Writing wise, The Peacock’s Feet publishes poetry, fiction, and nonfiction; however, even though it is a literary journal, writing is not the only talent featured. This literary journal also has an art section for those who are visual artists, as well as a SoundCloud account for those who are musicians. This is a great experience for students who are English majors or who want to make a career with their talents, but The Peacock’s Feet is not limited to only English/Art/Music majors. This is an opportunity for students of all majors, and we especially urge the ones who possess these talents but have never gone forth with them publicly. If you are chosen to be published, there is an annual banquet that shows Georgia College’s appreciation for your involvement with the journal. Students read their work, perform their music, and show off their artwork at this event.
To get involved with this year’s journal, you can submit one or more of your art, music, and writing submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submitting to this year's journal is December 4, 2018. Please see below the submissions guidelines:
1. Submit your art, fiction, music, nonfiction, and/or poetry to us at email@example.com by December 4, 2018.

3. Fiction/nonfiction pieces have a 10 page maximum limit (double-spaced!).
4. Poetry pieces have a 5 page maximum limit (also double-spaced!).
5. Art pieces should be submitted in a high-resolution JPEG file.

Our journal also hosts monthly Red Earth Readings during the fall semester, focusing on a different genre each month where talented readers and musicians gather.
