My thoughts are a cloud
That hangs low over the ocean
Surrounded by blue, 
blue, 
blue

I feel alone
The only one that is different
The bright among the dark

I try not to sink
And stay afloat
I won’t let this blue engulf me

As everything is fading
From blue to black
I am here holding on

My thoughts are a cloud
That hangs low over the ocean
Surrounded by blue, 
blue, 
blue

About

My name is Paige Touse, I am a junior English & Communications major, and the Assistant Managing Editor at VOX.

 I’ve known that I wanted to study English since I was in the sixth grade, when I fell in love with reading through Percy Jackson and The Olympians series by Rick Riordan. My favorite contemporary book is Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. My favorite classical book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Who are we? Why Online?

About

Vox Arts and Literary Journal, the Pace University Westchester Campus, is a student-run literary journal that accepts submissions of quality original fiction, poetry, artwork and photography. Work from any Pace University students, faculty, staff, and alumni are eligible for consideration.

Vox Publications exists for the purpose of publishing the original fiction, poetry, prose, artwork and photography of the students at Pace University’s Pleasantville campus. Vox which is Latin for “voice” provides a medium through which students can creatively express themselves.

The purpose of our online counterpart is to provide a space for works which, for stylistic or technical reasons, are separate from the offerings of our printed journal. Aside from providing another outlet for our standard fare (poems, prose, artwork), this online component seeks to incorporate works such as essays, opinion pieces, reviews, short film, music etc. Essentially, we seek to give a platform to mediums traditionally neglected by print media. 

Unlike our printed journal, which is released on a specific launch date, our online journal is meant to be updated regularly and we accept submissions all semester long. Any potential submissions are welcome at vox@pace.edu. Please be sure to specify within your email whether the piece you are submitting is meant for print or online.
