  • The Anthem 
    • Now accepting general submissions for the Spring 2020 edition until 04/02! All prose, poetry, and visual art from students, staff, faculty, and alumni is accepted. Submit your works as soon as possible so that the editorial board can make suggestions.
    • Valentine Contest from now until 02/19 anyone affiliated with Georgetown can submit prose, poetry or visual art inspired by our prompt for a chance to win a $25 gift card to wherever you would like. The prompt this year is: “Love can be as sticky as a vat of molasses, as unpalatable as a hunk of spoiled yeast, and as all-consuming as a six-alarm fire in a bamboo and canvas tent” (Twilight Zone).
