2021-2021 Submission Guidelines

Submissions to Sequoya Review are open to all UTC undergraduates! Deadline is October 15, 2021.

How to Submit:

  • Prepare your submission in standard font (like Times New Roman) and double space prose.
  • Make sure to proofread your submission before you send it.
  • In the subject line of the email, identify your genre (Poetry Submission, Fiction Submission, Nonfiction Submission)
  • In the body of the email, include a brief cover letter/bio that includes your name, your year, and the title(s) of your submissions. (If you’re a senior graduating in December, make sure to include an email address where we can contact you after graduation.)
  • Remove your name and any other identifying information from your submission. We evaluate submissions blind to ensure fair representation.

Submission Guidelines:

Poetry: We’re looking for poems that show an exemplary understanding of language, lyricism, punctuation, and form. We’re interested in seeing poetry that features concrete images and is rich with unique language and vivid experience. We welcome work that represents a variety of topics, backgrounds and poetic styles, with an emphasis on personal flair. Please submit no more than 5 poems with a 3-page limit; each poem should be titled. Please submit each poem in the form as you’d like it to appear.

Fiction: While we encourage all types of fiction, we will have a keen eye for experimental fiction that breaks traditional genre lines in terms of story, character, and style. Please submit no more than two submissions per person. Novel excerpts must stand alone. Pieces should be double spaced and written in a standard font, with a word count not exceeding 1500.

Creative Nonfiction: We’re looking for creative nonfiction in a variety of styles, including but certainly not limited to literary journalism, flash nonfiction, creative essays, and personal narratives. We encourage submissions that express personal style and illuminate a part of the human experience as it has been, as it is, and as it could be. Individuals can submit a maximum of 3 pieces collectively not exceeding 1500 words.
