Red Cedar, University of Wisconsin - Barron County's annual journal of the arts and literature, is now accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and other creative writing for our Spring, 2015, edition, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our deadline has been extended to FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2015.
Submissions are welcome from anyone. All submissions from undergraduates currently enrolled in Wisconsin colleges will be considered for two $75 editor’s choice awards, one for poetry and one for prose.
(Awards not open to current or recent Red Cedar staff members.)
Send up to five poems, or 1-3 short prose pieces of up to about 1500 words each. Mixed submissions of both poetry and prose are also acceptable. Please include all contact information, including a postal address, and a very brief bio note, and if you are an undergraduate currently enrolled in a Wisconsin college, please let us know so you can be considered for an editor’s choice award.
To encourage Wisconsin undergraduate authors in seeking wide recognition for high-quality writing, the editors and staff of Red Cedar will consider publishing pieces by Wisconsin undergraduate students that have been accepted or recently published by other publications edited and produced by undergraduates at any Wisconsin college or university.
Sade’s Sensibilities tells a new story of one of the most enduring and controversial figures in European literature. Blending ideas about subjectivity, identity and natural philosophy with politics and pornography, D.A.F. de Sade has fascinated writers and readers for two hundred years, and his materialist account of the human condition has been widely influential in post-structuralism, nihilism, and feminism. This new collection of essays, co-edited by Dr. Kate Parker, considers Sade’s Enlightenment legacy, both within and beyond the narratives of radicalism and aberration that have historically marked the study of his oeuvre. From different points of view, these essays argue that Sade engaged with and influenced traditional Enlightenment paradigms—particularly those related to sensibility, subjectivity, and philosophy—as much as he resisted them. They thus recover a Sade more relevant, even foundational to our twenty-first century understanding of modernity, selfhood, and community. In Sade’s Sensibilities Sade is no longer a solitary, peripheral radical, but an Enlightenment philosopher in his own right.
If you are an English major, or if you have ever considered majoring in English, then you have probably asked yourself, “What can I do with my degree?” The typical answer to this question is to teach. According to Montclair State University, only 30% of English majors go on to become teachers. Teaching is only the third highest occupational field that employs individuals with a B.A. in English. According to the College Majors Handbook, the highest occupational field is arts and communication. This is where English majors become employed as artists, broadcast and print journalists, technical writers, communication specialists, and public relations specialists. The second highest occupational field that English majors work in, is the business field as top and midlevel managers, executives and administrators.
UW-L English majors can choose this major along with a Literature emphasis, a Rhetoric and Writing emphasis, or an English Education emphasis. No matter which emphasis a student selects, a major in English is versatile and will provide students with the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in business, art, journalism, or even law to name a few. What makes English majors so marketable and able to work in such a variety of fields are the skills they possess.
The Mochila Review is seeking fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art submissions for the 2015 issue; we are currently accepting submissions until January 1, 2015. All information about regular submissions can be found at
Also, encourage your students to submit to our Undergraduate MoRe Prize for Writing!
Beginning this year, The Mochila Review is offering a writers’ contest to undergraduate students. This year, the contest will be open to poetry submissions only. Contest submissions will be accepted through our website from October 1 to December 1. The winning poet, selected by our guest judge, spoken-word poet Taylor Mali, will be announced January 1. He/she will receive a $50 prize and publication in our 2015 issue. The Undergraduate MoRe Prize for Writing is separate from our regular submissions and there is a small entry fee of $5.
Each year, the UW-L office of the Provost selects a poem written by a UW-L student to feature on the Provost's holiday card. The poet whose work is selected receives a $100 prize. To enter, students may submit an original poem by Thursday, October 23 to William Stobb in the UW-L English Department (email@example.com). The poem need not be a new poem, but it must be the student's own, original work. Provost Heidi Macpherson asks for poetry that does not promote or celebrate a specific religious tradition. Winning poems in past years have reflected on the winter season, family, and the spirit of charity, but new approaches are always welcome.
Mary Baldwin College's online literary magazine is currently accepting submissions for our first annual publication of the year.
Outrageous Fortune is the first online literary magazine created for undergraduates by undergraduates. It was begun by a group of students at Mary Baldwin College, where its headquarters are still situated.We publish undergraduate writing and art, and we feature the creative work of MBC graduates in some of our pages.
We accept all areas of work, including digital files such as video recorded spoken word. Each semester we look for fiction, non-fiction, drama, art, photography and poetry.
It's that time of the semester again. We are now accepting submissions for our Fall 2014 issue of The Catalyst. Who are we? We are a student-run publication seeking poetry, prose, art, photography, music, and all other creative ventures by the students, faculty, and staff of UW-La Crosse.
This semester's theme is "Don't Stop Me Now." From freshmen exploring their new-found freedoms to seniors looking forward to bright futures, no one wants to be prevented from living up to their potential. We would love to see what this means to you!
As always, the theme is simply a guideline and can be used as inspiration, but all submissions, including those outside the theme, will be considered. Please send your submissions and a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 3rd.
The Lanesboro Haiku Poetry Contest is part of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, a community development initiative led by Lanesboro Arts Center to integrate arts and culture into the social and physical infrastructure of Lanesboro, MN. With the creation of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, the municipal parking lot in Lanesboro will be transformed into the Poetry Parking Lot, an artful, functional space where “park here” signage is replaced with Haiku poetry. From now until June 25, 2014, we will be seeking submissions for Haiku to be displayed on the signage and throughout other components of the Lanesboro Arts Campus. We aim to hold this contest annually, replacing the poetry each year to create a rotating literary exhibition.
