JUNEAU - Attention all artists, authors, playwrights and poets: the University of Alaska Southeast is now accepting submissions for its 2009 edition of Tidal Echoes, the region's only literary journal.
UAS students enrolled at the Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan campuses - along with anyone living in Southeast Alaska - are encouraged to submit samples of their work for publication by the Dec. 1 deadline.
At least 25 percent of Tidal Echoes will be reserved for UAS students, with the remainder being filled by regional submissions selected by the editorial board.
As in past years, Tidal Echoes once again will feature poetry, prose and all forms of artwork ranging from photography and paintings to sculptures, pottery, carvings, beadwork, basketry and printmaking.
The UAS Juneau campus has made resources available for scanning photos and artwork or for taking digital photos of three-dimensional artwork. Any artist who would like to digitalize their work should contact Jeremy Kane in the Art Department.
UAS asks that submissions are accompanied by a cover letter that includes the contributor's contact information (phone number, address and e-mail), UAS student ID (if applicable), the title of each submission and a short biography of the author or artist.
Individuals can submit multiple works, including up to five poems, 15 pages of prose double-spaced or five samples of art. All work must be submitted in a digital format, preferably as a .tif or .jpeg file, via disk or e-mail. Text should be formatted in Microsoft Word or typed directly into the body of an e-mail.
Submissions can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Tidal Echoes, c/o Virginia Berg, UAS Humanities Department Soboleff Building, 11120 Glacier Highway, Juneau, AK 99801.
Questions can be directed to Emily Wall at 796-6113. Detailed guidelines can be found online at www.uas.alaska.edu/humanities/tidalechoes/.
