Pegasus lets students soar through self expression

By Amber Stafford, circulation manager

Every year the Humanities and Communication divisions put together a contest for students to enter works of original art, photography, poetry, short stories, and essays. Pegasus is RSC’s annual literary publication for students, faculty and staff for selected artwork and literary endeavors. The Pegasus journal has been in existence for 21 years. The spring publication will be Vol. XXXII (32).
Students may submit entries to the panel, which selects the best of works to showcase in a journal that is published in the spring. Pegasus highlights the outstanding creative work of the RSC community.
“Those entrants whose work is selected to be included in the book are invited to an unveiling ceremony, usually in April, and receive a free copy of the book,” Susan Dawson-O’Brien, professor of journalism said.
The book is produced by the Humanities Division, under the guidance of Dr. Betty Edwards, dean of Humanities Division. Theresa Walther, professor of English and Dawson-O’Brien, work together through all phases of production.
Acceptance by the editors for inclusion in the journal is an accomplishment and an honor as they accept the best submissions for publication. The number of inclusions varies from year to year depending on the number of applicants.
“Students are encouraged to submit their creative work to Pegasus because having their work published is a big deal and looks great on a resume and is a source of pride,” Walther said.
To get registration forms and more information, see Professor Walther in Humanities Room 133A or Professor Dawson-O’Brien in Communications Center Room 120. The entry due date is December 2 in the Main Humanities Division office. Copies of Pegasus journal can be purchased from Humanities department while supplies last.
