In 1925, Kell Hall was the first multistory garage to be built in Atlanta. It became GSU’s first permanent building after being converted to classrooms in 1946. While we wait for indefinite construction to wrap and the new greenspace to appear, swipe for photos our Art Editor @harrisonwaynegallo took of Kell Hall in transit. And don’t forget to submit to our upcoming issue, IN TRANSIT // Fall 2019. 🔗 Link in bio!

*first 👀 at our new staff*
Issue 10.1 Theme Announcement!!!
Many people aren’t aware our journal was named after our campus’s adjacent Underground Atlanta. This mixed-use shopping and entertainment district is home to post-Civil War Reconstruction Era buildings and cobblestone streets. Once a thriving staple of downtown, Underground Atlanta has been repeatedly abandoned since its heyday in the 1970s. If you’re a student or alumni of GSU downtown, chances are you’ve wandered around the subterranean ghost town that is Underground. And more than likely, you’ve experienced some form of nostalgia— even if indirectly.

Located across from Five Points MARTA Station hub, Underground Atlanta and its continued journey reflect Underground Journal’s decision to name our Fall 2019 issue “In Transit.” Although this is only a suggested theme, we encourage GSU undergrads to be as liberal as they desire in exploring its interpretation. We can’t wait to see what you create for us. Submission link in bio!

For our tenth anniversary, Underground is delighted to announce Issue 10.1 will exclusively feature GSU students!💡We’re going to get playful this year, and we’re encouraging you to do the same. We want your photography, digital design, micropoems, slant rhymes, mixed media, collages, short stories, comics, jr. high diary entries, watercolors, observational illustrations, and that category you just invented. We want textured voices and experimental tones. We’re naming this issue to honor a new chapter for our journal, so keep your ear to the ground for the reveal. 🔎

Still reveling in the buzz of inspiration that was the Mega College Media Workshop in Minneapolis last week. The opening keynote speaker discussed trauma and the importance of mental health in the field of Journalism. The following morning began with a panel on diversity and inclusion. The Literary Magazine track led by the wonderful Jim Cihlar of University of Minnesota exceeded our expectations. Prose editor, Victoria, and I are beyond grateful to Georgia State's Student Media department for the opportunity to stretch our legs and minds in new lands. We've already begun exploring the connections we made on this trip and preparing Underground Journal for a new kind of creative exposure. ⚡️

You betcha!

WELCOME! Cayce Tiedemann, here— your Editor in Chief for the upcoming 2019-2020 year. Underground Journal is GSU’s only art and literary journal featuring our students, by our students. We publish art, prose, and poetry from undergrads twice a year via our Fall and Spring issues. Our website, social media, and entire organization will be undergoing some major updates in the coming weeks. If you'd like your writing to be featured virtually in between calls for submissions, please reach out at [email protected].

A little about me...
I was previously Poetry Editor of Underground and before that— featured twice with poems I wrote after taking a loooong hiatus from creative writing. I'm proof that it's never too late to start (or return to) your creative endeavors. I'm eager and grateful for the opportunity to connect with all of you. Please stay tuned for details on our monthly Creative Writing Workshops held on campus and Open Mic Nights at Condesa Coffee on Auburn Ave.

With castanets and cowbells,
Cayce

Creative Writing Collective at GSU

Creative Writing Collective at GSU

Hello everyone! I have a bit of an announcement to make. After much deliberation, we decided to merge the Creative Writing Collective with Underground Journal. This just means that Underground will be holding weekly creative writing workshops instead of the CWC as an independent organization. We think this is in the best interest of everyone since Underground can better lend its resources towards promoting an undergraduate writing community on campus.

Our plan for workshops this semester is to alternate weekly between 5 P.M. on Mondays and 2:30 P.M. on Thursdays to try to accommodate for everyone’s busy schedules. Our first workshop meeting will be on Thursday, September 6th, at 2:30 P.M in Student Center East room 207. This will run just like a CWC meeting, so bring your poems and short stories. We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, email [email protected].
