Pegasus is ABAC’s award-winning undergraduate literary magazine, now with 42 years of publication behind it.
The magazine is led by faculty advisor Dr. Jeff Newberry, but it is completely produced by a staff of dedicated students.
The magazine is published every spring and has traditionally featured works by members of the ABAC community as well as high school writers and undergraduate writers from all over the state of Georgia.
For the spring 2016 issue, Pegasus will accept submissions from undergraduate writers in states participating in ABAC’S recently unveiled Neighbor Waiver: Florida, Alabama and South Carolina.
Pegasus accepts submissions through an online submission manager, https://pegasus.submittable.com/Submit.
The magazine prints prose (fiction and nonfiction), poetry, art, and photography. Pegasus may be looking to a reboot of sorts to accommodate the growing number of students in their reach.
“I’m looking forward to the, hopefully, much larger amount of art and photography submissions we’ll receive. There’s some really good talent out there, waiting to be seen and discovered,” said staff member Clare Jarboe.
Fall semester is usually dedicated to events for Pegasus, while the spring is reserved for the layout and publishing of the magazine.
The magazine will sponsor two Open Mic Nights this term (dates TBA), both open to the public. Participants are invited to read or perform a story, poem or song of their own or someone else’s.
The Banned Books event is held in October to bring awareness to censorship of books throughout the world.
Their biggest event, Writer’s Harvest, will take place on Nov. 12, from 7-9 p.m. in the Georgia Museum of Agriculture’s Conference Center.
This night will feature prominent writer Ira Sukrungruang, author of the American Book Award-winning “Southside Buddhist.”
According to Dr. Newberry, “We are an undergraduate literary magazine with the mission to serve ABAC and its community, but we are a family first and foremost.”
If you are interested in joining Pegasus, meetings are held on Wednesdays in Baldwin Library room 202 from 3:15-4:05 p.m.
