The Traveler, GCC’s arts and literary journal, is set to open up for submissions early in October. Soon, we’ll be flush with wonderful poems, short stories, creative essays, and scripts. But, we need more staff to read through all of those submissions. It’s time, then, for you to volunteer. No more delay. No more evading. No more pretending like you don’t know me or see me when we pass by each other on campus, or acting like you can’t hear me when I’m speaking directly to you, or saying that your spam filter probably ate the email, or turning the house lights off and the sprinklers on and setting the guard dogs loose when you see me coming up your driveway. I know you’re in there, Henry!
Whether you’ve been reading and submitting to The Traveler for years, or if this is your first semester with us at GCC, we want your input. We value all readers. And, reading and working on The Traveler does NOT prohibit you from also submitting to the magazine for publication.
So, volunteer. It’s good for you, contains vitamin C, fends off colds and malware, allows kittens and puppies to live long and academically-fulfilling lives. Come read, serve as literary editor, and have a hand in choosing what we publish in our next issue.
Those interested, or those with additional questions, should contact The Traveler’s faculty literary advisor, Jeff Baker, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, come by his office in 05-139 and leave cryptic messages on or under his door that will take days for him to decipher. Stick figures of goats and cable TV boxes normally work best.
