Getting published matters! Ask any academic.
We are happy to support the efforts of Amaranth, Lehigh University’s Literary Magazine by sharing their a call for submissions.
(Adapted from their website)
For over a few decades, Amaranth
has been Lehigh University’s premier literary magazine. Featuring the best imaginative writing and art work from our undergraduate and graduate students, Amaranth
seeks to provide an accessible outlet and source for creative expression throughout the university. Student editors select literary and graphic works for inclusion in their journal and nominate the best of these for the prestigious Williams prize, awarded annually. 2011 witnessed the launch of their online presence and submission portal, and online editions of the magazine will begin appearing in Fall 2014. They have worked diligently on the site to provide more information on Amaranth
and creative possibilities across the campus. They are currently developing a blog and have established a growing social media presence. They encourage our readers to follow them on Facebook
for updates, contests, and news.
The Amaranth website includes comprehensive information about the magazine including, not not limited to:
Submission Guidelines (as quoted from their website)
Amaranth welcomes short stories, micro fictions, poetry, photography, graphic art, and works of electronic literature. Submissions are accepted from both undergraduate and graduate students and English and non-English majors. Although we receive the majority of our submissions from Creative Writing classes, we also encourage students to pull work from their “half-done” drawer and revise for publication. Please submit no more than two stories, three pieces of visual art (photography and graphic art), and five poems at a time, along with a cover letter explaining your literary interests and career at Lehigh. Cover letters should include a word count and indicate whether the submission is fiction, poetry, or visual art. Simultaneous submissions are accepted on the condition you alert us immediately if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
It is through this literary magazine that Lehigh University students can share their creative writing. Go ahead, reveal your brilliance!
