SYMPOSIUM

Symposium aims to showcase the best creative work by students at Western University -- we accept any form of creative writing and visual art. Multimedia submissions are welcome, but please keep in mind that this is a print publication.


The Spring 2020 theme for SYMPOSIUM is Transformation. – Becoming. Being. Be. Change is inevitable, transformation is an important part of being human. The choices you make and the effects, the affects, the difference in perspective are all curious elements of storytelling. Symposium is looking for your stories about change, alteration, and perspective. We want your ventures, your plot twists, your epiphanies. A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.

SUBMISSIONS OPEN UNTIL FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH, 2019.

 

All submissions must be e-mailed to ahscpubs@gmail.com in accordance with the criteria outlined below. (If you have any general questions/comments/concerns, feel free to shoot us a message as well! We would love to hear from you!)


We encourage you to submit as early as possible. The earlier you submit, the earlier our Pubs Team will get to review your work for the journal!

SEMICOLON

Semicolon aims to showcase the best writing and thinking by students at Western University - we are looking for the provocative, for the considered, for the critical analysis of our world and the stories we tell ourselves about it. Although Semicolon primarily publishes academic essays, we will also consider other academic work that pushes the boundaries of traditional academic formats and conventions, so long as it ultimately represents a significant exercise in critical thought and analysis.
