HOW WE SELECT WORKS FOR PUBLICATION
Here at P’an Ku, we have a simple process for screening the works you submit to us. For literary works, our staff, as well as a group of student volunteers, are asked to read each piece submitted to us and rate it on a three point scale (i.e. “1” for no, “2” for maybe, “3” for yes). The same methodology is applied to works of visual art. At the end of the voting process, final scores are tallied by our managing editor, and the highest scoring works make it into the magazine. Even then, some of the work does not make it into the magazine, due to issues with limited space. At that point, our editor-in-chief, literary editor, and art editor all work together to determine what pieces make it into the final cut of P’an Ku. All of this is done anonymously, with no prior knowledge of who created any of the writing or artwork submitted to us. To keep things as fair as possible, our editors are limited to no more than one piece in the magazine.
