Plum is the student-run, faculty-guided literary journal of Greenfield Community College.  We publish student writers alongside new, emerging, and established writers from the western region of Massachusetts and southern Vermont.  Our mission is to provide a platform that nurtures the creative potential of students, celebrates the rich tradition of writing alive in our region, and creates an engaging exchange of stories, ideas and experiences that strengthens the community as a whole.

We accept submissions of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and reviews. Plum is published twice a year, in May and December. Submissions are accepted year-round.

Students enrolled in Introduction to Literary Publishing form the Student Editorial Board.
