Submission Criteria
Thank you for your interest in submitting to Souvenirs! We're excited to review your piece, and we look forward to sharing more student work with the campus community. Before completing the submission, please review the following criteria to ensure that your piece meets our standards. Following these guidelines will greatly enhance the chance of your work being selected for our publication this semester. If you have questions about these guidelines, please contact the editor-in-chief at souvenirs_union@wisc.edu

General Guidelines

With each piece, please include the full title, your name, year in school, email and continent(s) pertaining to your work. We welcome students from all majors, but we encourage you to create content for a wide audience including the entire campus community. We accept photography, artwork, poetry, short stories and impressions—as long as they are related to some type of travel experience. And yes, travels from within the United States still count!

Short Stories, Poetry and Reflections
All written work should be in PDF, DOC, DOCX or TXT format. Pieces should be formatted in a way that you would like them reproduced in the journal and follow standard AP style. Essays that exceed 2,000 words may be edited for length. In your piece, please include your name and page numbers in the upper right corner of each page. If there are any additional materials that you would like to include with your piece, please include them as part of the same submission. Written work may not necessarily include these additions, but all artwork/photography should follow the same standards as an art submission if attached to your piece.


All art pieces and photography should have an image quality of 300dpi with CMYK coloring. JPG, TIFF and PNG formats are accepted, but TIFF is prefered to ensure maximum image quality. Images should be submitted at their full resolution to allow for proper sizing in the print issue. If you're submitting photographs, please include a PDF or DOC that includes where each picture was taken (City and Country). You should be able to submit 15 photographs per submission, but feel free to submit more than that.

Special Guidelines
Submissions will generally not be accepted after the posted deadline unless previously discussed with the editor. If special circumstances prevent you from submitting your piece by the deadline, a brief extension may be issued. Please contact the Editors-in-Chief Sophia Dramm and Ruth Brandt at souvenirs_union@wisc.edu if you need more information.

We look forward to reviewing your piece!
