Changes to The PEEL?

2 Mar

Hello everyone!

The PEEL Literary Arts Magazine’s final submission deadline has come to a close.  With the amount of submissions we received, this edition of The PEEL will be the best yet.  Those selected for publication will be notified in the upcoming weeks.

For those interested in increasing their PEEL involvement, consider applying for one of our many staff positions.  Editor-in-chief applications are due by Friday, March 6th so if you know someone who is highly organized, motivated and has an excellent eye for detail, tell them to email thepeel@appstate.edu and request an application today!  The other positions are:

Assistant Editor
Editorial Assistant
Production Editor (Also Graphic Design Committee Head)
Committee Heads (Art, fiction and non-fiction)
And possibly even an Events Coordinator

For the PEEL to continue to be a strong presence on campus, we need dedication from the people we serve.  Get involved by submitting your writing and artwork or even taking the time to be a volunteer reader/serve on a committee.  This is ASU’s venue for student creativity so lets make it great together!

The current staff is also in the process suggesting some key changes to The PEEL.  We want your thoughts!  Should the PEEL be an Annual publication, or a semesterly publication?  How do you feel about increasing PEEL events like open mic nights, battle of the bands or film screenings?  If there is something you would like to see The PEEL do comment and let us know!

Look for more updates about the release date of The PEEL and the Gala event that will be an excellent close to another year for ASU’s literary magazine, The PEEL!

    I think I want the editor in chief next year to make this magazine a monthly publication. If it’s a magazine, why is it coming out only once a year? A typical magazine comes out weekly. So, why can’t we do monthly? If the campus newspaper can do twice a week, I’m sure you guys can do a monthly issue, correct?

    yea! Amen, brother. Im sure all you PEELERS work hard enough, but I would like you to work thousands of times harder. I want this magazine published twice a day! lets out do the competition here. If you want this magazine to survive, you’ve got to push the limits. transcend some boundaries–some of those being the physical, mental, and emotional capabilities of already committed individuals. bi-daily. the new in publishing.

    you are an ass. but i think the mag needs a lot more than just publishing, i think it could use a make over to get it off the ground. not that i have ever seen an actual publication, but maybe it needs some major advertising. to push limits is not a bad thing, what is sucky is your attitude. and i would really like to help out just not with sarcastic stick-in-the-muds.

    We are unable to publish weekly, monthly or even semesterly due to restrictions on funding and university policies. I too would love for the magazine to come out as frequently as a typical magazine, but this is how a college lit mag generally operates. If you want to get involved, we would love to have you! E-mail us at thepeel.appstate@gamil.com.

    Ed. in Chief,
