Have You Started on Your Submissions Yet?

typewriterWe have received such wonderful feedback and great excitement for Issue 2, thanks to all of you, our readers.  As the semester moves forward, the important due dates and tasks sometimes creep up faster than expected.  The deadline for Issue 3 is March 31st, which will be here before you know it.  However, between group projects, work, late night study sessions, and extra curricular activities, it can be difficult to find time to write.  It is important to work it into your schedule, no matter how short of a time it may be.  Between classes, jot down a few sentences. Observe others on campus who are out of earshot and create a dialogue for them.   Scribble down a poem.  Design unique prompts that will get the though process flowing from one topic to the next.  Journal each night before turning in.  Whatever your preferred method, it doesn’t matter.  Just keep writing!  We are so eager to see what the future holds for Issue 3, and between the busy parts of every day life, we wish you the best while creating your original works of fiction, creative non-fiction, personal essays, micro fiction, poetry, and art.  So keep those pens moving and that keyboard clicking to get your submissions in today!       

Submission Format

  • All files should be in .doc, .docx, or .rtx formats
  • Do not put your name in the document.  Do not put your name in the filename. Please use only the title of your work in the filename.  This is very important to us as we want to maintain a fair and unbiased selection process for each of our submissions.
  • In the body of your e-mail, please include a brief biography.  You can write whatever you’d like, but feel free visit our Meet the Staff page if you need some ideas.  If your submission is chosen for publication, your biography will be included in the magazine as well.  Remember, the biography needs to be in the body of your e-mail, NOT your submitted work.
  • All prose and poetry should be double spaced and in standard fonts Times New Roman or Arial.  
  • Be sure to thoroughly edit your work for spelling and grammar errors so you can represent your best work possible.  If you need editing assistance, don’t hesitate to use campus services like the Writing Center.
  • If you would like more tips on professionally formatting your document, please read Formatting 101 by Marlys Pearson.
