CR accepts submissions for literary journal
“Personas,” College of the Redwoods’ literary journal with a multilingual focus, is currently accepting submissions for its inaugural issue of original poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, essay and art that, in a way determined by the author, consider the experience of multilingualism.
Writers need not be multilingual to contribute, and writings may be multilingual, bilingual or monolingual. Submissions are accepted from all community members, as well as staff, faculty and students of the College of the Redwoods. The submission period is currently open and will be through midnight on March 16.
Fiction, creative non-fiction and essay submissions are limited to one submission per author and a length of no more than 2,000 words. Poetry submissions are limited to three poems per author. Poems should be under two pages in length and submitted in the format in which the author wishes them published.
Email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Personas Submission” and the title of your submission. Include a brief (no more than 100 words) biographical statement.
The submission should be attached to your email message with the title and no personal information. You may also submit by mail or drop off printed copies at 525 D St. Eureka, CA 95501.
Art submissions (any medium) are limited to three pieces per artist. All art submissions will be considered for the cover. Take a photo or scan your work.
A public reading event will follow the release of the print edition of the journal. This event will be held at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka on May 20 from 3 to 5 p.m. The public is welcome. Attendance at this event is not necessary to submit your writing.
All chosen submissions will be considered for awards from Booklegger, Eureka Books, NorthCoast Mensa and Northtown Books unless the author states they would not like to be included in this consideration.
