Your campus journal needs you

It’s cold and we all seem to be walking fast from door to door somewhere trying to prepare for finals that are quickly approaching. Fall semester is close to over and the end is in sight. The last thing we want is more things to add to our “to-do” lists, but this addition is worth it.

Your campus art and literary journal, the Salmon Creek Journal, is accepting submissions right now until Dec. 6.  On first read, you may ask, so what? What is the Salmon Creek Journal?  If you are a writer, poet, artist or enthusiast this journal is your chance to get published, for free.

1997 was the first year WSU Vancouver had its own annual art and literary journal on campus. The Salmon Creek Journal is a student-led publication, run by six student positions: editor-in-chief, prose, poetry, and visual arts editors, a marketing director and a web and layout designer. Kerry Layne Jeffrey, Katie Fisher, Tabi Chivaugne, myself, Vlada Kushnir and Kimberly Lawrence hold these positions for the 2013-2014 year. In these positions we choose everything about the journal from cover to cover based on gathered submissions from students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Submissions must fit in to one of the four categories: prose (short story), poetry, visual arts or performing arts. Submitters can submit up to six pieces per section and cannot submit anonymously. The Salmon Creek Journal entirely depends on submissions collected in the fall for the annual print in the spring and the Dec. 6 deadline is right around the corner.

The Salmon Creek Journal 2014 will be the sixteenth edition of our campus journal and we need your talent. Once selected, submitters will be notified and will anxiously wait the revealing at the launch party in the spring. If you do not submit you cannot get the chance to be apart of your campus journal. This is your journal and your time to go for it. All information about submitting: salmoncreekjournal.com/submissions.
