About

Vision And Mission Statement

"Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's the gift to the world and every being on it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got."
The Pulse is the Johns Creek High School Literary Magazine. We accept and publish student submissions of art, photography, short stories, and poetry. 
 
By sharing these creative submissions, we hope the artistic community of Johns Creek will continue to thrive. 
 
The Pulse creates a sense of pride and unity amongst the talented artists and writers at Johns Creek High School. Like the blood in our veins, art circulates through the world and every being on it. 

Editorial Policy

The Pulse Literary Magazine is a curricular literary magazine, run and managed by a student staff. 
 
Verbal and visual pieces are staff-selected for quality. Verbal pieces may be edited for grammar, while visual works may be cropped to fit the specifications of the magazine.
