LOCUS: John Abbott’s Literary Magazine

Sarah Paulin
Production Manager

The fall semester is in full swing and the deadline for submitting your work to Locus approaches! Here is everything you need to know to submit to John Abbott’s literary magazine!
Locus is a student-run magazine that showcases the best of student artwork. Locus accepts all sorts of visual and literary artwork. Paintings, photography, short stories, collages, poems, etc. can be sent in for a chance to be featured.
Each student can submit up to ten pieces of art before November 2nd to The submissions will be judged by the board of editors throughout the month, in time for the magazine’s release in December. When submitting, please be sure to include your name and student ID in the body of the email. Pen names, and even anonymity, are allowed. However, you must give your real name to the editors so they can confirm your attendance at the college.
All contributors and editors are invited to the launch party two weeks before the end of the semester. Food and drink will be provided, and contributors will have the chance to talk about their work and, if they wish, read it aloud and discuss among partygoers.
Getting published in Locus is a great personal accomplishment as well as a great line to add to your CV. Universities love to see well rounded students and this is a great way to make yourself stand out.
The Locus team would also like to add that no racism, sexism, or excessive violence will be tolerated.
