Student submissions are reviewed and scored by one of our three critique committees (poetry, prose or visual), with the authors or artists remaining anonymous. All work is then accepted or rejected based upon the committee's scores. An online edition 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. If you would like to become a member of a critique committee, our graphic design committee, or our public relations committee, please email thepeel@appstate.edu expressing this interest.
