About

“The Peel Literature & Arts Review works to cultivate creative expression at Appalachian State University by providing outlets for students to express themselves.”

WHO ARE WE

An online edition of our literature and arts review is released at the end of fall, while both an online and print edition are released at the end of spring semester. The print edition features the highest scored student works from both online editions of the academic year. We accept student submissions of prose, poetry, audio, video and artwork.

HOW WE DO IT

Student submissions are reviewed and scored by one of our three critique committees (visual, poetry or prose), with the authors and artists remaining anonymous. All work is then accepted or not based upon the designated committee’s scores.

WHY WE DO IT

The Peel is committed to nurturing and celebrating our university’s vibrant, active and creative community. We strongly believe that Appalachian students deserve an outlet and showcase for their creative expression. We invite you to join The Peel Literature and Arts Review as we continue to learn and grow while fostering the Appalachian creative atmosphere by publishing quality content in an accessible medium.
