The Traveler is a student creative arts magazine produced annually by the English and Art Departments of Glendale Community College since 1968. These stories, poems, creative non-fiction and artwork are created by GCC’s multi-talented student body.
Submissions are CLOSED for Fall 2019. Thank you to everyone who submitted! The Traveler will reopen for submissions in Fall 2020.
Publication in the Traveler is decided by GCC staff judges that are experts in their respective fields. Submissions are accepted every Fall. Fiction and One-Act Plays (Drama) are limited to 3000 words. Creative Nonfiction entries are limited to 2000 words. Flash fiction returns in the new issue with a 500 word limit. Up to three pieces of poetry or artwork can be submitted–with poems not exceeding 67 lines.
Those responsible for this publication believe in artistic freedom of expression. Therefore, we have not censored the contents of The Traveler. We realize, however, it is important that the readers of The Traveler be aware that it contains some content of an adult nature.
