Ends on

Thank you for submitting your literary art for possible publication in our 21st volume of The Salal Review, Lower Columbia College's award-winning literary and visual arts magazine. Each literary art piece you submit will be reviewed anonymously by our student editors enrolled in Arts Magazine Publication to enable an unbiased review process, and you will be notified of our decisions before or during January 2021. The finished volume will be presented in print and web form and unveiled at our launch party event in June 2021. To view previous volumes, visit www.salalreview.com.

Submission Guidelines:

  • All authors with a connection to the Lower Columbia region are eligible to submit to this publication, and you will be asked to describe your connection in a short biographical note within the submission form. 
  • A maximum of five poems may be submitted.
  • A maximum of two stories or essays, which may include, for example, short fiction, non-fiction essays, and graphic narratives (comics), may be submitted.
  • While there is no word count maximum for written pieces, consider that our publication is limited in page count and we hesitate to publish lengthy pieces that take away our ability to showcase works of art from various authors. 
  • All submissions must be typed. 
  • DO NOT include your name on submission files (in the document or the file name).
  • Each individual submission MUST be submitted separately for individual review (continue on to the submission form for tips on how to make this process simpler). 
  • Edit carefully for grammar and spelling. Has anyone else read it? Have you received feedback and revised it? (If you are a student who would like help, consider meeting with tutors in the Learning Commons.) We are looking to publish pieces of work that are polished and ready for publication. 

This call for literary art submissions will end on October 31st, 2020. The call for visual art submissions will be available from December 2020 to January 2021. If you have questions or need assistance, please email salal@lowercolumbia.edu. Thank you.
