Submit Your Work for the Pen’s Winter Issue!

The Pen, Garfield’s literary and arts publication, is taking submissions for the Winter 2021 issue. The theme of the issue is “winter trails,” inspired by the feeling of a fresh start after a snowfall, covering the past and leaving a blank canvas for the new year. How will you reflect on what’s frozen in the past? What imprints do you want to leave behind? We take art in all mediums, including but not limited to: photography, paintings, drawing, musical compositions, poems, playlists, and short stories.

Please send submissions to or the Pen’s Instagram @theghspen with a short (1-3 sentences) explanation of how you interpreted the theme. All Garfield students and alumni: please do not hesitate to submit your work!
