Submissions are now officially open for WELTER [Volume 53 Fall/Winter 2018]! We are seeking your previously unpublished work* in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual art. Please be sure to check out the genre-specific guidelines below. 

We want to be clear as a journal that we are not only seeking work from current university staff and students, but from the the arts community at large. A degree (or degree-seeker) holds no authority to the written word (or visual art), and as readers we welcome all perspectives. As Welter celebrates diversity: authors are not obligated, but encouraged to self-disclose identity information in a cover letter. Please do not put your name anywhere on your submission file so we can assure anonymous and fair readings. 


* We will accept a piece that’s currently up at any of your personal social media sites, we just ask you to remove it before publication.
