About Underground

Underground is Georgia State University’s very own undergraduate literary journal. Our staff consists entirely of undergraduate students who attend the university’s Atlanta campus. We publish an issue of poetry, prose, and art once every semester. We love (and want) work that is experimental, daring, and a little bit weird. If that sounds like you, then consider submitting your work to us!

We accept submissions from all undergraduate students in America, from every accredited university and college. Please see our “Submissions” page for details on our submission process and reading periods.

Rebecca Bates, Production Editor

Rebecca Bates is a junior who is currently pursuing a Studio Art major with a concentration in Graphic Design. She’s been enthralled with art ever since she can remember, experimenting with all forms artistic expression that she can–including dabbling in creative writing. She loves to gather inspiration from various places, whether it be other artists, film, or cartoons because she’s a huge nerd like that. One day, Rebecca will actually finish one of her numerous self-inflicted projects.
