Submission Guidelines

General Guidelines

Our journal publishes material from both undergraduate and graduate students across the nation, including current APSU students and alumni. At this time, we only accept online submissions, and the submission deadline for the Spring 2021 journal is February 15, 2021. 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we do request that contributors include this information, if applicable, in their cover letter. If the work is accepted elsewhere, please notify us of your work’s acceptance as soon as possible.

We accept all genres, but we may limit some more specific genres (i.e. romance, science fiction, fantasy, etc.) to 1-2 pieces per publication. Your cover letter should also contain a list of the works included in your submission along with the category of your piece. We allow contributors to submit in up to two different categories. For example, we will consider two prose pieces and an audio-visual piece from one contributor, but these must be separate submissions. We also request for contributors to not include a biography until we confirm your work’s acceptance.

We do not accept previously published work.

Please email all submissions to
