Georgia College has its own undergraduate literary and creative arts journal, The Peacock’s Feet. Published annually, the goal of the journal is to showcase GCSU student’s talent without costing students a penny. Writing wise, The Peacock’s Feet publishes poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Even though it is a literary journal, writing is not the only talent featured. This literary journal also has an art section and has a SoundCloud set up for those who are musically skilled. This is 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 these students. This is an opportunity for all students 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.
For written submissions, submit your work in an attached word document in the body of an email with the subject line as the specific genre; include the title, author, name, and class of. For art submissions, do the same but submit it as a JPEG file. For music submissions, do the same, but upload it to SoundCloud and email us the link! All submissions should follow MLA format: double-spaced, 12 point font, and Times New Roman.
The deadline for submissions this year is November 20, 2017. If you need any more information, feel free to contact us at: email@example.com. You can also find us on Facebook: facebook.com/PeacocksFeet.
