Southeast writers and artists of every stripe are encouraged to submit to the University of Alaska Southeast’s literary and arts journal, now accepting submissions through Dec. 1 for its 2014 issue.
Tidal Echoes, which is published each year and features the work of Southeast Alaska writers and artists, accepts everything from short stories to nonfiction to poetry, advisor Emily Wall said. Visual artists can participate, too. The magazine features five works of art each year. And although students are encouraged to submit work, the journal accepts submissions from anyone and everyone in Southeast, Wall said.
The journal receives almost exactly 300 submissions each year, she said. Pieces are reviewed and narrowed down by Tidal Echoes’ board, and final selections are edited and compiled by three student editors, Wall said. Student and community involvement makes the publication unique, she said.
“It’s students and faculty and tons of community members,” Wall said. “Tons of people contribute to the project.”
Authors and artists must be full-time Southeast residents to be featured in Tidal Echoes. A full list of submission requirements can be found online at www.uas.alaska.edu/arts_sciences/humanities/tidalechoes.
