Submission Criteria:

Thank you for your interest in submitting to Illumination! We are excited to review your piece, and look forward to sharing your work with the campus community. Before completing the submission, please review the following criteria to ensure that your piece meets our standards. If you have questions about these guidelines, please contact the Editor-in-Chief at illumination@library.wisc.edu

A word on our submissions:

Our submissions are blind, so we are not able to see your name or contact details until after we've made a decision on your piece, and these are never a factor in choosing our pieces --we accept works entirely on merit. We ask that you write your name in the application so that we can contact you regarding the decision we make on your piece, and so that we can give you due credit on your work at the time of publishing. We are not able to see these details until after a decision has been made on your piece. If you would like to remain unknown, write "Anonymous" or N/A on the name field.

Please, DO NOT INCLUDE ANY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION ON THE BODY OF YOUR WORK. This ensures that our process remains blind, transparent and fair. If you include identifying information on your text or art files, your submission will not be considered for publishing. 

If you are submitting Fiction, Poetry, or Essays:

All written works should be in DOC or DOCX format. Pieces should be formatted in a way that you would like them reproduced in the journal. However, works that exceed 10 pages will be edited for length. Please note that "essays" refer to works of creative nonfiction --Illumination does not publish academic essays. Do not include any identifying information in the body of your work. This ensures that our submission process is blind, transparent and fair. 

You can submit to Illumination as many times as you want! However, only one file will be accepted per application. This ensures that all the files you upload make it to the right desk, and can be graded on individual merits. We apologize for any inconvenience! 

If you are submitting Visual Artwork:

All art pieces should have an image quality of at least 300dpi with CMYK coloring. Only upload using a TIFF format to ensure maximum image quality. Images should be submitted at their full resolution to allow for proper sizing in the print issue. If your piece does not follow these guidelines it will get rejected. Do not include any identifying information in the body of your work. This ensures that our submission process is blind, transparent and fair. 

Please include the media used to create the piece and its dimensions. Artists with work selected for the print journal are invited to hang their piece in the Open Book Cafe at College Library (or an alternative location) as part of the Illumination gallery. This gallery typically runs for the later part of the ongoing semester or the beginning of next semester, and artists are celebrated at our opening reception. All artists are encouraged to submit their pieces, and all works are returned to their authors at the end of the exhibition.

You can submit to Illumination as many times as you want! However, only one file will be accepted per application. This ensures that all the files you upload make it to the right desk, and can be graded on individual merits. We apologize for any inconvenience! 

Keep in Mind:

Submissions will not be accepted after the posted deadline unless previously discussed with the Editor-in-Chief. If special circumstances prevent you from submitting your piece by the deadline, a brief extension may be issued. Contact illumination@library.wisc.edu if you need more information.

Remember, do not include any identifying information in the body of your work! This ensures that our submission process is blind, transparent and fair. Also, please note that you can submit to Illumination as many times as you want! However, only one file will be accepted per application. This ensures that all the files you upload make it to the right desk, and can be graded on individual merits. We apologize for any inconvenience! 

Best wishes, and good luck!

Editorials featured in JUST are critical analyses presenting a well-researched perspective or opinion on a controversial, innovative, or less well-known topic in the field. Editorials express viewpoints through objective analyses of recent events and discoveries in the field in question. They should evoke public interest, thought, and action. These articles are addressed at and are relevant for a general audience, and are brief, about 2-3 pages in length. A select number of editorials will be chosen to be published in our Fall 2017 issue, with the option of all others being published on our digital publication or website.

We’re a student publication that is building the next big thing for undergraduate work in the humanities. Help us make it possible.

Our staff is made up entirely of undergraduate students that want to do more than discuss Shakespeare’s first folio and take notes during presentations based on text books made before the moon landing.

We are 17 students (and growing!) that care about writing, art and public service, and want the humanities to be more than something that comes up in think-pieces on public education.

Positions are filled on a rolling basis, depending on staff vacancies and the needs of the publication. We encourage you to apply before February 1 if you would like to be considered for the 2018 Spring Semester; we would love to have you join us!
