Submission Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

  • We accept fiction, essays, poetry, scripts/screenplays, photography, art in all of its forms, and music compositions and recordings.
  • Submissions must not exceed five pieces of work.
  • Please be self-aware about submission length. As of now there is no specific word limit but we may choose not to feature something if it exceeds our abilities to print.
  • Art must be in digital format. If possible, avoid submitting photos taken with a camera phone. Low quality photos will print poorly.
  • Submissions may include a short description to help readers in understanding the piece. This is not a requirement.
  • Digital music submissions will be included in a digital album alongside each issue of The Northwest Passage.
  • Every submission should have a title and be emailed as an attachment to: northwestpassage@wou.edu
  • Submissions are accepted all year. However, submissions must meet the deadline to be considered for the current issue.

Note: No more than three submissions per contributor will be published per issue, but additional submitted work may be considered for future issues. Submissions may be accepted under a pseudonym or featured as a work by “anonymous”. All submissions are read blind by the editorial board and chosen based on quality
alone.
