Submit to Miscellany

The editorial staff of Miscellany at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, invites undergraduate students to submit creative writing and visual arts pieces for consideration in our 2017 issue. Miscellany welcomes all undergrads across the United States to submit their work, especially if they have not yet before had the opportunity to submit to a competitive literary and arts journal.

Founded in 1980 by poet Paul Allen and his student, John Aiello, Miscellany has been dedicated for decades to providing a competitive venue for emerging undergraduate writers to submit their work for publication, and as of 2015, we opened up our submissions to all undergraduates across the nation.

We select submissions in a workshop-style setting with a staff of about twelve volunteers, led by the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor. Submissions are judged by content, originality, craft, and on how well they fit in with the publication as a whole. We ask that interested students submit before December 6th, 2016. The annual publication is released every April.

Past issues of Miscellany as well as instructions on how to submit can be found on our website at http://blogs.cofc.edu/miscellany. There, you can also find contests (the current ones end October 21st), the creative works of our staff, and other articles and interviews.
