ellipsis... literature & art
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
ellipsis… literature & art is the annual literary journal published by the students of Westminster College since 1965. We sponsor a yearly poetry contest judged this year by Matthew Gavin Frank.
All accepted poems are eligible. Past judges include James Galvin, Nance Van Winckel, and David Gewanter. Contributors include well-known writers, up-and-coming writers, and never-before-published writers.
We accept English language submissions in poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, drama, and art. Our submission period is August 1 through November 1 for poetry, short fiction, drama, and creative non-fiction. We accept art submissions from August 1 through February 1. Please read the guidelines for each genre below.
Please include a cover letter with a brief contributor’s note with the following: your address, telephone number, and email address.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome but withdraw your submission immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
We pay our contributors $10 for each poetry or art piece and $50 for each prose piece, plus two free copies of the issue.
Submissions cannot be accepted via email.
