The Griffin is a literary journal sponsored by Gwynedd-Mercy College. Its mission is to enrich society by nurturing and promoting creative writing that demonstrates a unique and intelligent voice. We seek writing which accurately embodies or reflects the human condition with all its intellectual, emotional, and ethical challenges. Like the mythical griffin, a constructed creature of fearless strength and courage, we prefer formed works rather than experimental ones.
Manuscripts of literary works - poetry, short stories, short plays, reflections - are accepted for consideration for publication throughout the year. The Griffin is published once a year in the fall.
