Submissions

The Monitor is nothing without submissions from our readers – we encourage you to contribute your art or writing, even (especially!) if you’ve never been published before. Here are some basic submission guidelines:

Art, Comics, Photography
Nobody wants to read nothing but blocks of text, our visual artist submissions are what help give the monitor its personality! Due to publication limitations, our art and photography is printed relatively small and in black-and-white (except in the online version of the publication). Keep this in mind when submitting your piece. If we like your piece enough, it may end up on the cover! Let us know if you don’t want that.

Articles
The Monitor encourages submissions of original articles, essays, fiction, and opinions. Due to space limitations, please limit articles to 1300 words. If you would like to publish something longer than that, send us an email and we’ll let you know if and how we can accommodate your piece. For formatting reasons, please submit all text as a Word attachment.

Fiction
Limit fiction submissions to 1300 words. Again, this limit is flexible – send us an email and we can discuss it. For formatting reasons, please submit all text as a Word attachment.

Poetry
Shorter poetry is more likely to be published. Let us know if you have any specific printing or formatting requests with your poetry. For formatting reasons, please submit all text as a Word attachment.

Submissions should include your name (anonymous or psuedonymous submissions are also acceptable)  and should be sent by email to trumanmonitor@gmail.com or handed in person to any Monitor editor.

SUBMISSIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2014 TO BE INCLUDED IN THE NEXT ISSUE! Don’t be shy, we always appreciate your contributions!
