Periphery is the annual, student-produced publication of Drake University. This journal is committed to showcasing the very best in undergraduate short fiction, poetry, and everything in between. Here at Periphery, we take our name very seriously and are looking to accept the stories and pieces that have been sliding around the outskirts of your mind for too long before they are grinded onto paper. We want the art that doesn’t necessarily fit conventional categories or defies boundaries in some way. All that we ask is for artistic quality to remain a fundamental aspect of whatever you create and submit.
