about the magazine

so what is jaws?

jaws (journalists, artists, writers, students) is an independent English magazine founded by students (with the help of university lecturer Sarah Mercer) at the English and American Studies Departments of the Karl Franzens-Universität in 2000. It is being published twice a year, at the beginning of summer and winter term, respectively.

Content ranges from essays, poems, reviews, interviews, short stories, reports about travelling / living abroad to photos and cartoons. Our contributors consist mainly of students and lecturers of the English and American Departments, but of course everybody else is free to read jaws!

where can i get it?

jaws can be bought at the secretary's office at the English Department of the Karl-Franzens University Graz (Heinrichstraße 36), for currently 4,- Euros per copy.

We are proud to offer a platform for fellow journalists, artists, writers and students. But above all we are proud to say that all profits made from the magazine sale go to the Steirische Kinderkrebshilfe charity organisation.
