A yearly publication which highlights the best student writing from the Department of English at SUNY Geneseo
We've titled our journal Gandy Dancer after the slang term for the railroad workers who laid and maintained the railroad tracks before the advent of machines to do this work. Most theories suggest that this term arose from the dance-like movements of the workers, as they pounded and lifted to keep tracks aligned. This was grueling work, which required the gandy dancers to endure heat and cold, rain and snow.
Like the gandy dancers, writers and artists arrange and rearrange, adjust and polish to create something that allows others passage.
Gandy Dancer is an online literary magazine, publishing fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, drama and visual art. We welcome student writers and artists from all the SUNY campuses to submit. Edited by students at SUNY Geneseo, Gandy Dancer will be published twice yearly.
The editors invite submissions that forge connections between people and places and, like the railroad itself, bring news of the world. We hope you'll join us on the journey.
