CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Photography, and Visual Art by Undergrads


Folio is open for submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, photography, and visual art from undergraduate writers and artists! Submit your work by March 15 to be considered for our Spring 2023 Issue.

Founded in 1959, Folio seeks to publish the very best from emerging undergraduate writers. Folio stands against hate of all kinds, respecting the sacred individual in every living thing; we seek art that furthers understanding, defies convention, but that acknowledges the histories that led us here, to this moment, too. To this end, we are interested in new voices and new perspectives, especially those from traditionally marginalized and underrepresented communities.

To check out the current issue as well as archives you can visit http://www.foliomagazine.org. We accept submissions via Submittable; please visit our submissions page for full submission instructions. Send us your nascent stars, dear Readers; we cannot wait to bask in their glow!

DePaul’s Blue Book: Best of Illinois High School Writing 2020 edited by Chris Green and students in the DePaul English Department’s Masters in Writing & Publishing program is now available at https://www.depaulsbluebook.com/ 

DePaul’s Blue Book is the latest imprint by DePaul University’s English Department, which fosters work in literature, creative writing, and publishing. Indeed, we recently established DePaul’s Publishing Institute, which brings together our student literary magazine, Crook & Folly; the long-standing poetry journal, Poetry East; the urban prose journal, Slag Glass City; and Big Shoulders Books, a press that publishes books that give voice to unique communities and important issues in Chicago and that are edited and promoted by students.

DePaul values the written voice, and the English Department honors and encourages young writers. From over fifty high school literary magazines submitted from across Illinois, Professor Chris Green and his editing class of graduate students in DePaul’s Masters in Writing & Publishing program selected forty-five stellar pieces of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. This is the second volume of our annual tribute to our state’s best young creative writers and their schools’ literary magazines.

There is a virtual launch of the anthology featuring seven of its writers on Friday, February 19th, 6:00-7:00 PM. Log in information below:
