Submissions are Open

This fall, we’re asking you to make a choice: Truth or Dare?

We want to see work that deals with truth – uncovering it, hiding it, coming to a personal truth, living your truth, or work that delivers us the truths you’ve discovered about life.


We dare you to send us your most daring work. Daring in form, content, subject, or execution. If you’re willing to take the plunge, we’re willing to come with.

As with any game, we ask that you follow just a couple of rules. Poetry submissions must be limited to three poems, and fiction or creative nonfiction submissions must be under 5,000 words.

Submissions are read on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, with a break in November and December.

This submission window will close at 11:59pm, PST on 10/31/21.
