Write for the Writers Magazine

(The Beacon)


If you've never had the opportunity to hold your own creativity, watching it spill over your hands, glistening in glossy ink on the pages of a book or magazine … this is an opportunity you won't want to miss: The University of Portland is publishing its annual student-run Writers Magazine and wants sketches, poems, one act plays, pictures, stories and one-panel comics from you!

Ever since my freshman year I've had the pleasure of being published in the Writers Magazine. Each year I fumble around, stringing syllables together in hopes of saying something worth listening to, and I am continually thrilled to have a chance to submit my work, putting myself out on the proverbial limb in hopes of a glimmer of success.

For those of you who have never done so, and especially for those of you who have, dig around for a sketch or poem, story or picture, play or drawing you have created during some far-too-long night class and see if you have what it takes to be published. One need not be a Shakespeare or Michelangelo to submit, just send us something you're proud you created and you could wind up in the 2012 Writers Magazine.

For details about submissions check us out on Facebook. This year's deadline is Feb. 17!
