The Deadline is Finally Here!

submissionsHey, UNO writers!  The Issue 3 submission deadline is today, March 31st.  If you have yet to send in your original, creative works of fiction, non-fiction, essay, micro fiction, poetry, photography, or any form of art, you have the rest of today to do so.  We are very excited that we are able to showcase the work of our fellow classmates.  There is a wide range of creative talent on campus, which we value greatly as it has allowed 13th Floor Magazine to experience continuous growth.  Hopefully, you have already submitted your work, but if not, please see the submission guidelines below.  Thank you to those of you who have already sent in your work to be reviewed for publication.  Issue 3 will be released before long, and we’re looking forward to filling it’s pages with unique new pieces of creativity.


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.
