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 ($100 prize), judged by Laurie Ann Guerrero in 2021 and Carolyn Forche in 2022. Saddiq Dzukogi will judge the 2023 contest.
All accepted poems are eligible. Contributors include well-known writers, up-and-coming writers, and never-before-published writers.
We accept original English language submissions in poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, drama, and art. Submit poems in one document, please. 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 January 31.
Please include a 75 word contributor’s note and your address, telephone number, and email address.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome but withdraw your submission immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Note that we do not republish pieces, including work online.
We usually pay $10 per poem and page of visual art, and $3 per page of prose, plus two free copies of the issue. We cannot pay international contributors.
Submissions cannot be accepted via email.
