About

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. We publish two online issues per year, in November and May—as well as an annual print issue in August. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, the staff is comprised of students who solicit, screen and edit content from writers and artists. COG publishes literary fiction and poetry involving the magical, the strange, the rebellious, the adventurist, and the outlandish. Our stories have complex characters, in messy relationships. Please explore some of our issues to get a feel for our work.

 

Cog has two annual contests, the COG Poetry awards, and the COG Page to Screen Awards, whose winners receive digital and print publication, a blurb from a celebrity judge, a cash award, and see their work built into a short piece of animation by select teams of Digital Art and Animation and Audio Music technology students.
