Sirocco, a magazine of the arts, is published in April of each year by students at Georgia Southwestern State University.  A senior unit of the University System of Georgia, GSW is an affirmative action / equal opportunity institution.  The magazine is graciously funded by the Student Government and the GSW Foundation.  Opinions expressed in the magazine are neither those of the editors nor those of the University.

Submissions must not have been previously published. They are welcome at any time, but cannot be read and acted upon except during January and February.  All submissions must be typed and must follow the magazine's format.  Basic biographical information about the submitter must be included.  Authors and artists should have some present or past affiliation with Georgia Southwestern.  No work will be returned unless accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

All correspondences should be addressed to:

English and Modern Languages
Georgia Southwestern State University
800 Georgia Southwestern State University Drive
Americus, Georgia 31709

Cover Art Contest

Any art submitted to the magazine for publication will automatically be entered in the Cover Contest.  The winner will be featured on the cover of the 2015 edition of Sirocco and receive a cash prize. 


We are currently looking for individuals involved with the university to help Sirocco progress into the future, if you are interested please contact us.
