The Anthem is Georgetown University’s long-running literary magazine, publishing a semi-annual collection of the university community’s best poetry, short fiction, art, and photography. We solicit submissions from students, alumni, and faculty and review them weekly, providing feedback and helping to bring each piece closer to publication.

If you are a Georgetown student, alum, or faculty-member interested in art, writing, or photography, we highly encourage you to submit. The Anthem is a great place to get your work published, whether for the first time or just the most recent.

Our staff will send you detailed feedback and work with you to produce the best piece possible while remaining true to your original vision. You can submit your work for publication to any time before October 31st or March 14th for fall or spring publication, respectively.

If you are a Georgetown student, we would also be happy to have you join us for our weekly meetings. We meet Thursdays from 8:00-9:00pm in Leavey 409 to go over the week’s submissions as a group.
Together, we suggest improvements and decide what we think should ultimately be part of the magazine. If you’re interested, please join our club on Hoyalink to get on our mailing list. You can also find us at the student activities fair.

If you have an idea for a contest, reading, or other arts-related activity, please let us know! We are happy to host a contest and often publish winning works. Contact Courtney Lee, our editor-in-chief, at to pitch your idea.
