With 2016 drawing to a near close, we here at the Analecta Editing Department just wanted to remind everyone that the deadline for all submissions (prose, poetry, and art) will be February 1st, 2017. In addition, we wanted to remind everyone that a $50 grand prize for art has been added to this volume of Analecta. One winner will receive $50 dollars cash (actually, probably a gift card for legal reasons) and publication on the front cover of Analecta Volume 47. If you have any questions or would like to submit, please see the SUBMISSIONS section for information on how to submit, as well as how to get a hold of us here in the Editing Department.
Hello, all! It’s that time again, time for Analecta! (I know, right? Like, didn’t the last issue, like, just come out and stuff?) This reading period marks the 47th volume of IUSB’s student literary publication of all things creative. We accept Prose, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, and Visual Arts including Paintings, Sculpture Works, and Graphic Arts. (For questions on other types of submittable art email the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org)
As we begin the new season, we are looking for anyone interested in editing. This includes reading through submissions and choosing which pieces work best with the overall concept for the book. We may meet up once a month, perhaps twice a month near the deadline to group edit. At times, this may also include free pizza and goodies, time and budget permitting. (If you would like to get in on the fun email the editor at email@example.com)
Lastly, the Editor-in-Chief, Jon Adams, would like to thank the English Department and Kelcey Parker Ervick for allowing him to manage this year’s publication.
Now, as they say on Iron Chef America, or, well, something like they say anyway–
I remember the first time I submitted a piece of my creative writing to a journal…IT WAS TERRIFYING! I worried that I was sending my work out into the great (and critical) unknown. I’ve had my work rejected (a lot), I’ve had my work accepted (a little), and I have had my work BUTCHERED by editors that clearly did not see my vision (reflecting back, I sometimes fail to see my vision on those pieces too).
It is that last experience that we, at Analecta, want to avoid this year. We will be suggesting revisions for some of this year’s submissions and will invite the writers to come to a open house workshop to meet with an editor and work in collaboration to help polish up their work. Our goal is to publish the best collection of creative work that we can and to do that we want to work with the writers to make small tweaks in order to insure they are putting their best work forward.
We will be finalizing workshopping days and times with our staff and making an announcement about in the weeks to come. As always…SUBMIT! SUBMIT! SUBMIT!
