Castings is the literary journal that publishes the
poetry, prose, fine art and photography of our students. It's an opportunity
for students to showcase their talent and represent the creativity within the
CBU community. It is put together every Spring semester by two student editors
and overseen by Dr. Karen Golightly in the School of Arts. The
journal is usually distributed across campus the week before final exams in the
Contest: To help promote the journal and motivate students,
submissions are entered into a contest where the winning students in each
category will win a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place monetary prize. The due date is
normally February 1 of each year for both the competition and submissions
to the journal.
Submissions: There is no limit for how many pieces a
student can enter, but they should identify no more than two or three pieces
that they would like to be judged in the contest. Extra submissions will simply
be published in the book if there is enough page space. Each category has three
judges (professors) from the different departments on campus. There are two
expert judges and one neutral judge to decide the winners.
You can email submissions to Dr. Karen Golightly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
