Perceptions Student Literary Journal

 Perceptions Logo 2014

Perceptions is Southwest Minnesota State University's student literary and arts journal which publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and art. We accept submissions from current students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Submission Period: September 6-November 30.

Submission Guidelines:
All written submissions should be submitted in .docx, .otd, or .pdf format. Please include your contact information in the email, but not on the work itself. You may submit work in each genre that we publish. There is no limit on the number of submissions or the word count.

A maximum of 5,000 words may be published in each individual prose genre (fiction, non-fiction, and drama).

Up to 3 poems may be published at a time with a combined length of up to 5 pages total. Each poem should start on a new page.

Artwork should be submitted as a pdf or jpg. Up to 5 pieces may be published at a time. All artwork published within the journal will be printed in color; please keep that in mind when submitting.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept all pieces submitted for publication in Perceptions. Please consider submitting early as space in the journal is limited. You will be notified of our decision via email.

Perceptions is also accepting--and exceedingly grateful for--donations. Please email us for more information.

All submissions, inquiries, and other communications should be sent to perceptionssmsu@gmail.com
