Publications that Accept Undergraduate Submissions
1. After a successful first online issue, the Swarthmore Literary Review will publish online and in print this coming spring. This magazine is edited by students at Swarthmore College. It is the college's first student publication to accept submissions from the greater writing community.
We have no special requirements as to poetic form or genre; however, all work must be previously unpublished. Please email no more than five poems, along with a short biography, to firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 1st. Send your work as part of the body of your email and as an attachment. Submissions that we receive after the deadline will be considered for next spring's issue. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
For more information, check out the Swarthmore Literary Review website at www.swarthmore.edu/literaryreview. We look forward to reading your poetry!
the Swarthmore Literary Review
The Swarthmore Literary Review seeks to create a student directed venue for the work of talented Swarthmore and at-large writers. In doing so, the editors hope to foster an exchange between Swarthmore College and the greater international writing community. Over time, we aspire to expand readership, humbly hoping to foster a love of the arts throughout literary circles on our own campus and abroad.
2. The Valley Humanities Review is currently seeking essays in the humanities for publication in its Spring 2011 Issue. We seek essays of high quality, intellectual rigor and originality that challenge or contribute substantially to ongoing conversations in the humanities. Topics may include but are not limited to: literature, history, religion, philosophy, art, art history and foreign languages. VHR is also currently seeking poetry submissions; students may submit up to three poems.
VHR is committed to undergraduate research and scholarship in the field; therefore, we only accept submissions by current or recently graduated undergraduate students. Our reading period runs from September 1 to December 15 of each year. All submissions received outside of these dates will be returned unread. All submissions should adhere to the Chicago style in formatting, footnoting and bibliography. Essays should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words in length, be free of errors and have an original title; essays in languages other than English may be 2,000 to 6,000 words.
All submissions should be free of any identifying marks such as names, addresses, or school affiliations. Please give contact information in the body of your email. All submissions should be emailed to email@example.com as a Word document attachment. Please visit www.lvc.edu/vhr for more information.
