Deadline nears for journal­

The May 23 submission deadline for the 2014 edition of Explorations, an online magazine geared toward publishing Murray State graduate students’ work is quickly approaching.

Explorations, which will be releasing its newest online publication next fall, displays graduate students’ creative writing, research and thesis in a variety of programs.

Despite the diversity of the programs involved, submissions are still limited to certain subjects. Jeffrey Osborne, professor of English and philosophy, said that while a broad range of topics are still covered, the number of creative writing submissions has begun lacking.

While the goal of Explorations is to feature as many disciplines as possible, it is also limited by the variety of manuscripts submitted by students.

Though the diversity level of the publication hasn’t fully expanded, the number of submissions is high enough that some professors on the editorial board rarely try to recruit writers from their classes.
