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 2019-20 Arts and Humanities Students' Council (UWO) Publications Team is now accepting submissions from students for the FALL 2019 issue of Symposium! The theme for this issue of Symposium is Obscura. Give us your narratives about the unseen, the hidden, the restricted. We want to feel the possibility of illusion, the thrill and danger of the voyeur, the moment of silence that covers the unsaid. Explore senses beyond sight, the barely felt movement at the edge of your vision, the sounds you can almost but not quite decipher. Think about the camera obscura, about truth and the hidden, about known unknowns and unknown knowns. 

 

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25th, 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. 

The 2019-20 Arts and Humanities Students' Council (UWO) Publications Team is now accepting submissions from students for the FALL 2019 issue of Semicolon, our bi-annual journal of peer-reviewed academic writing.

 

SUBMISSIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED FROM NOW UNTIL FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25th, 2019.
