The Association of Writers and Writing Programs is holding its annual conference this week in Denver, featuring more than 400 events and presentations, including lectures, readings, book signings, panel discussions, and dances. The conference attracts more than 500 publishers and presses and thousands of attendees.
On Saturday, Superstition Review is taking part in a presentation about undergraduate-run literary magazines:
S182. Students who Build Things: The Literary Magazine as Teaching Tool for Undergraduate Students
Saturday, April 10, 1:30-2:45pm
Agate Room, Hyatt Regency Denver, 3rd Floor
(KC Culver, Collette Morris, Karen Craigo, Zach Tarvin, Patricia Murphy, Haley Larson)
We represent three undergraduate programs that have succeeded in establishing undergraduate-run journals. Prairie Margins publishes undergraduate students nationally in print; Superstition Review publishes both new and established writers nationally online; and Mangrove publishes the work of undergraduates at its university both in print and online. The panel will give practical advice on establishing effective leadership, facing budget constraints, submission management, and publishing options.
Superstition Review does not accept undergraduate submissions. Lux Undergraduate Creative Review does publish undergraduate work, but the submission deadline for their annual issue passed in November. So what’s an ASU undergraduate writer currently seeking publication to do?
Consider sending your work to Marooned, a small ASU magazine supported by the internal Internship Program for ASU’s English Department. Much like Superstition Review, Marooned gives undergraduate student interns hands-on experience in publishing a literary magazine. Unlike Superstition Review, Marooned solely publishes work by ASU undergraduates, and unlike Lux, they publish biannually. Marooned is now accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, art, and essays until April 1, 2010 for publication in their Fall 2010 issue. Head over to www.asumarooned.net for more information.
The submission deadline for Lux Undergraduate Creative Review is fast approaching. Submissions for fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, film, music, and art are due by Thursday, October 15th. Selected creative pieces will be published in their sixth annual issue, which is set to launch during the Spring 2010 semester. This is a great opportunity for undergraduates students to be published in a magazine that values originality, individuality, artistry, diversity, and passion.

Don’t forget to submit and we look forward to seeing your work in the next issue!
