Pegasus, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s award-winning literary magazine, is now in its forty-second year of publication. It has placed twice in regional competition: at the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow in Alabama (1977) and at the Savannah Regional Press Institute (1984). From 1988 to 1998 Pegasus won numerous American Scholastic Press Association awards, including first place and first place with special merit.

The magazine is published each spring and features stories, essays, poems, art, and photography from ABAC students, faculty, staff, and alumni, undergraduates enrolled in Georgia colleges and universities, Georgia high school students, and a limited number of outside contributors (by request only). ABAC writing (prose and poetry) contributors are eligible for the Editor’s Choice Andrew Mckay Award. Named for a former staff member, the Andrew McKay Award represents the best of ABAC writing.

Past contributors to Pegasus include Janisse Ray, Joshua Lavender, Michael Garriga, Niles Reddick, Jeff Newberry, Sandra Giles, Chris Tusa, Tom Hunley, Jean Gay, and a host of other writers and artists.

Pegasus debuts each year during a launch party at the annual George Scott Day, ABAC’s celebration of the arts and humanities.

PURPOSE: To encourage young writers, artists, and photographers, and to provide the best of these a place to publish; also to encourage and nurture the artistic, literary, and cultural community of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and Tifton, Georgia.
