Do you like to write poetry, short stories, or song lyrics? Or maybe you’re more visual and like painting, photography, or drawing? No matter what type of artform you practice (it can even be collages or graphic design), you should consider submitting your work to Locus. Locus, run by students, is an art and literature journal. The editors go through all submissions to select those most worthy of being published.
Interested in submitting? It’s easy. In one e-mail, include all your submissions, your full name, your student ID, and your penname (if you want one). Send everything to locus. firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is October 30th, so hurry up!
Obviously, there are few conditions and rules that must be followed. If submitting a literary piece, please send it via a PDF file. If it’s a visual piece, the highest possible resolution and codec is appreciated. Also note that short stories cannot go over 1000 words and you’re allowed a maximum of ten art pieces.
At the end of the semester, a launch party will be organized: the editors will unveil the new edition of the journal, and the artists will get to share and explain their masterpieces. Having something published in a journal looks very good on a CV. Employers and universities seek out the students who are involved in more than just the minimum requirement of attending class.
No matter what program you’re in, Locus is a great way to show your work to the public.
