“The Box,” Submission Season, and a Brave New Stylus!

Brace yourselves! Submission season has arrived!

Although we are a few months away from the winter season, submission season has already made its presence!

Yes, it is here again, so put on your faux-fur beanie, tighten up the hipster boots, pour the pumpkin spice lattes, kiss the worn Wallace Stevens poem for luck, and prep the fountain pen with ink because it’s time for writing!

The Stylus is calling for any poem, short story, prose-poem, fan-fiction, flash-fiction, non-fiction, photograph, painting, drawing, doodle, or sketch that you may have hidden in your desk drawer.

Submit and get a chance to win a substantial cash prize–to then spend on ugly sweaters for the coming holiday events!

To obtain the cash prize submissions should try to answer the difficult question of “What Makes You Happy?”.

This question may be answered through text, video, paint, sculpture, or photography.

The deadline for this competition is Nov. 26th.

Submission guidelines can be found here. Be sure to follow them so that your wonderful work is not turned away!

There is also a call for Open Submissions which will run until January 15th.

This is a call for any and all work that follows the guidelines described here.

There is also a “Box for Anonymous Submissions”–located outside of the Caf’–for those who wish to remain anonymous when sending in their excellent works.

The works submitted to the box will not be considered for the cash prize, but will be considered for publication.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at stylus@millsaps.edu
