Odyssey Magazine of the Arts is an annual publication of Lake-Sumter State College and has been produced since 1988 in a stand alone version. It seeks to publish the works of unpublished authors, artists and photographers in an effort to engage the college community in artistic expression.

The magazine is run by a faculty advisor, a staff of scholarship students, and student volunteers whose interests run from business management to graphic design to internet technology. 

The magazine sponsors an annual art and literary contest for the students of Lake-Sumter State College that culminates in an art gallery exhibition held across all three campuses from April - May. All submissions to the magazine, whether online or print, are eligible for the contest. To submit, please see the Submission Guidelines page for more information.
