Authors/artists published in an edition receive a complimentary copy by mail. Additional copies available upon request, though supplies may be limited. Public copies are available on BSC campus libraries, service area libraries and high schools. Digital archive copies are coming soon.
Why must I submit my artwork, prose, or poetry without my name on the file?
Selections for the journal are made by blind review to ensure a judicial process. Your name is attached to your work through Submittable.
Who decides what goes into Adroit?
The Adroit Editorial Staff, a group of ABAC at Bainbridge students and faculty responsible for the creation and publication of the journal.
Are ABAC faculty or staff allowed to submit to Adroit?
Submission is open to all of Southwest Georgia.
If I am not a resident of Southwest Georgia, may I still submit?
Submissions from outside Southwest Georgia that capture or address the region in their content or theme are welcome.
If I have submitted to ABAC's journal Pegasus, may I also submit to Adroit?
Yes. Pegasus and Adroit are separate publications, located on different campuses, and run by different staff. Submission to one journal does not constitute submission to the other.
May I submit the same work to both Pegasus and Adroit at the same time?
No. If your creative work is still under consideration for one journal, it cannot be submitted to the other. Please see our Submission Guidelines.
If I submit a photo or artwork of someone else, do I have to have their permission?
Permission of a human subject is only necessary if your subject is a minor.
Am I allowed to submit artwork of a copyrighted character?
Unfortunately, copyright laws protect and restrict the artistic reproduction of iconic images, such as Batman, Mickey Mouse, and the like. We cannot accept works of this nature.
Are there content restrictions or requirements?
No. However, the Adroit staff reserves the right to select or reject any piece for any reason.
What does Adroit mean?
Skillful; using the hands and mind. Dexterity under duress.
