‘Gadfly’ Literary Seeks Submissions

mcc 300 1HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (1/23/14) — Revived in the 1980s, by English Teacher Cynthia Anderson, “Gadfly,” Madisonville Community College’s Literary Magazine, has been reaching out to unique, diverse mixture of community members with eclectic writing and artistic styles.

The magazine is currently taking new submissions for the 2014 edition.

“In 1987, we had the first well put together issue,” said Brooke Archila, lead editor. “Since then, we have been going pretty strong.”

When the magazine first started, students and faculty members worked together in the editing process. However, as the years went on, students lost interest and in 1990, the process became faculty member’s responsibility.

“I would like to bring students back into the editing,” said Archila. “It will give students a good experience, and I think it works to have students editing with faculty members.”

To keep costs down in the early days, the magazine was exclusively in black and white.

“We had a recent increase in the budget,” said Archila. “Now, we are able to put out the nice colored version, which I think makes it really pop.”

“It is a big sense of accomplishment to see your work out there,” said Archila. “That’s why I really want to spread the word. A lot of people still don’t know about it.”

To submit stories or for more information, email Brooke Archila at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . When submitting, materials should be sent as a word document, PDF or JPEG.

“We try to have the magazine out by graduation week,” said Archila. “I think it’s important to get more people submitting to this because we have so much talent in this community. I think people are surprised who publishes, who paints or who writes poetry. It’s important for us to share that, and to be able to put our work out there for other people to see. We look forward to hearing from everyone.”

 

The Gadfly ranges from science fiction to romance literature from students, faculty, community members of Hopkins and Muhlenberg Counties and other surrounding areas.

Participants of all ages are welcome to submit original poetry, fiction, essays, photography and artwork for consideration.

There is a limit of four submissions per person, which are due by Feb. 1.
