LAURINBURG — Gravity Hill, the student literary journal at St. Andrews, has opened submissions for publication for its 10th edition.

According to Ted Wojtasik, the journal’s faculty adviser, submissions were opened to the Scotland County community three years ago, a move which allowed the journal to “publish several pieces from a new base of authors.”

“We are looking forward to adding even more to the collection this year,” he said.

Gravity Hill is a student-run publication that is published annually in the spring. Andrew Primeau is the student editor for the 2014 edition.

The editorial board welcomes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, one-act plays, photographs, and artwork. The deadline for all materials is Dec. 15.

Gravity Hill is named after a local legend of the car accident at the intersection of Stewartsville Cemetery and Old Maxton Roads where a woman and her child were killed by an 18-wheeler and where, today, if a motorist stops a car and puts it in neutral, the two ghosts are said to push the car up the hill out of harm’s way.

Work can be emailed to or mailed to Gravity Hill, St. Andrews College Press at St. Andrews University, 1700 Dogwood Mile, Laurinburg, NC 28352.

Previous copies of Gravity Hill can be purchased at the St. Andrews Press Office for $5.
