Submissions OPEN for the 2013 issue!

What’s that you say? You have some awesome poem/story/essay/portrait/sculpture/still-life/landscape/interview/photograph/video/ANYTHING that you’ve made and you want it published? Well SUBMIT to Sequoya Review for the 2013 issue, due next year! You just have to be a UTC student in good standing and have something cool to submit. Here are the details:

Submit your piece to Submissions are due by October 5, 2012. We welcome multiple submissions, but please, follow the 12-page maximum for prose and 3-page maximum for poetry guidelines. Include your full name, grade year, student ID and email address in the body of the email, but remove all that personal stuff from the submission document itself, so we can stay honest.

Speaking of that document: name it as Genre_Title_Date (i.e., CNF_How Not to Break Your Mama’s Heart_8-28-12.doc). The format should be something universal and copyable, like .rtf, .doc, .docx, .odt, or .txt (sorry no .pdf). They should be in a normal font, 12pt or so, double-spaced, with one-inch margins.

To be considered, you must be a student in good standing by the time submissions are due (October 5, 2012) at UTC. We’ll check!

Good luck and good writing – we look forward to reading your submissions!

News for yous : record submissions, readership, and more!

Hi friends,

It’s been a pretty exciting month for all of us at Sequoya Review. The 2012 issue of Sequoya Review will be released March 2012. We had a record number of submissions – 207 to be exact – to the 2012 issue, and a record readership of our 2011 issue. Thanks for reading us, and submitting! We have just sorted through all of them to let everyone who submitted know where they stand. If you did submit, thanks for playing! If you made it, congratulations; if not, there’s always next year.

Speaking of next year, we’re doing something crazy at the Sequoya Review this time around: submissions are open February 6! Check out the Submit section of the page for details and the link. (Please do read the guidelines though. We can’t accept it if it’s not in keeping with those, especially since we have so many now.

We also have a new thing going on in our ‘offices’ : we need volunteers to help us out! We’ve grown so much we don’t know what to do with ourselves, and you guys can help out! We need people to do the following:

  • write blog posts and press releases
  • archive old issues of the Sequoya Review and its other incarnations
  • market and advertise the magazine around UTC and Chattanooga

In return, we’re prepared to give you a credit in the Sequoya Review (which you can mention on your resume!), a better position to be an editor in the fall, and more! If you want to apply, please email us at and tell us! We take all kinds, and can probably find something for you to do, so don’t hesitate! Please include your full name, academic grade year, cell number, email, and what positions interest you most. And be sure to check out our new Volunteer section for more updates!

Well that’s about it for now. Hope your year is getting to as good of a start as ours!
