The Chestatee Review


The Chestatee Review is the University of North Georgia's student literary and arts magazine. Not only does the magazine feature student poetry, short stories, one-act plays, creative nonfiction, formal essays, and visual art, but the magazine is also produced by students.

To join the staff, students may either attend the magazine's club meetings or register for ENGL 2210: Magazine Production I or ENGL 2215: Magazine Production II.

In the club, students learn how to organize, market, and conduct events and contests, while in the class, students learn Adobe Photoshop and InDesign to create advertisements and magazine layouts.
