Student Publications

The watch magazine, Porter-Gaud’s student publication in the Upper School, is designed to feature the best student work from around the campus and includes news stories, interviews, editorials, reflections, short stories, poems, and submissions from the visual arts. Available in both print and digital formats, the periodical is issued twice a year (one each semester) in a regular magazine format, and once a year as a literary journal, the watchwords (published in mid-Spring) with winning entries from the school’s annual poetry and short fiction contest.
