Call for Submissions

Artifacts is a refereed journal of undergraduate work at The University of Missouri.

The journal celebrates writing in all its forms by inviting student authors to submit projects composed across different genres and media.

FINAL Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2020 for the Summer 2020 publication. 

PUBLICATION

Submissions will be evaluated by members of the Artifacts editorial board. We encourage media compositions that may include video, audio, podcasts, photos as well as the traditional essay.  If you choose to submit a traditional essay, we encourage you to add hyperlinks where helpful and to include images or other media (that you have rights to use) that expand or enrich the scope of your work. Projects are selected not because they meet some universal standard for writing, but because they meet with creativity and intelligence the particular demands of given topics and forms.

WRITING CONTEST

All submissions received before the final deadline will also be considered for the writing contest and be eligible for a $500 first prize, a $300 second prize, and a $200 third prize.  Prize funds will be deposited into winner’s student account as financial aid.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submissions should be e-mailed to Julie Birt: birtja@missouri.edu

*** NOTE:  If your submission is chosen for publication the photos you submit will be posted on the Artifacts website***

Up to two projects accepted per person, 10 pages maximum per submission (Including works cited)
