Call for Submissions: TellUs from the CMWR at UCWbL

TellUs, the literary magazine of the Collaborative for Multilingual Writing and Research (CMWR) within the University Center for Writing-based Learning, is now open for submissions through May 1st!

In the past, CMWR has published the works of multilingual and multicultural writers/artists in Global Voices, an online magazine. They would like to bring back this idea through their forthcoming multicultural and multilingual publication, Tellus.

Tellus is an online magazine celebrating the many voices of our DePaul community by showcasing the creative artwork and writing of multilingual and multicultural students. CMWR acknowledges the definition of multilingual as anyone from a background in which various dialects of English are used, a background where English is an additional language, or a background in which English is a person’s native language but they grew up influenced by other languages or cultures.

Attached you will find the TellUs call for submissions flier with CMWR’s QR code for submitting work. Submissions are due by May 1st!
