The Independent Scribe 2009-2010 Submissions Guidelines

The Independent Scribe is now accepting student-produced arts and literature submissions, encompassing across a vast creative gambit of genre.

When in doubt - assume the Scribe is interested and please send it our way!

Who Can Submit We are currently accepting writing and artwork from undergraduates and graduate students solely from the University of Rhode Island. We are also thrilled to receive submissions from our alumni.

What to Submit No more than 5 poems or 10 pages of prose at a time.

How to Submit Electronically, to theindependentscribe [at] gmail [dot] com. Please send text submissions as .doc attachments; art submissions as .jpg attachments. Remove writer's name from all submissions.

When to Submit We work on a rolling submissions calendar, but only works received by October 16th, 4PM will be considered for the Fall 2009 publication. All works received after 4PM on the 16th will be considered in the Spring 2010 submission pool.

We look forward to hearing from all the talented individuals in the University community.

Welcome to the official website of The Independent Scribe, URI's arts and literature publication! To date, the Scribe has enjoyed 3 successful editions featuring the best student-produced writing and artwork at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

This semester, our submission deadline is Friday, October 16th by 4 PM - any submissions received after this deadline will be put into the review pool for the spring edition. All submissions must be emailed to theindependentscribe [at] gmail [dot] com, and your name must not appear on the body of the document to ensure a proper anonymous review (a cover letter or introductory statement in the email is welcomed). Our copyright policy is such that full rights are returned to the student either upon publication or rejection of their material, and all submitting students will be notified in advance of the editorial board's decision.

(Don't worry, these rules will get their own special post.)

All URI students are invited to attend our meetings on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 4-6 PM. A location will be announced when it has been secured.

Be sure to bookmark this site and visit frequently for such goodies as event announcements, contests, reviews of writing resources, and other fun features. We are also available on Twitter and Facebook!

Thanks for visiting. Happy reading and writing!
