Polis: a community center (Greek marketplace); a place where a community dialogue occurs; perhaps a sacred ground;
Central Virginia Community College's Literary Journal
Polis accepts submission of poetry, fiction, nonfiction (including academic essays), and artwork by CVCC students twice a year. CVCC students submit three copies of their work (no name attached-contact information is provided on a separate cover sheet), and at least three Polis Board Members review each work using criteria established by the board. When submissions receive contradictory ratings, at least one additional board member reviews the work in question.
This year (2005-2006), we decided to include the works of faculty and staff as we attempt to create a publication that is truly reflective of the community. Works by faculty and staff go through the same submission and rating process as do works submitted by students.

The board would like to thank all the people who submitted their work to Polis. We would also like to thank John Lofaso and Jim Patterson for their assistance with artwork. A special thanks also goes to Tom Sparhawk who graciously maintains our website.
