Kolob Canyon Review: Call For Submissions

If you’re looking to get your voice out there (and published!) the perfect opportunity has just arrived. The Kolob Canyon Review (KCR) is looking to consider submissions from SUU faculty, staff, students and alumni.

The KCR is Southern Utah University’s very own literary magazine, and the purpose it to “promote and present SUU’s best written and visual creative works, serving as an entry point for creative writers and visual artists.”

Megan Warner, an English Creative Writing major, is the current Editor in Chief for the KCR. Because this literary magazine is student run, it provides the perfect opportunity for the staff, too. It provides experience in  literary editing and publication. 

“Working on the KCR has helped solidify that this is what I want to do. I knew I wanted to [pursue a career] in editing, but the whole process has been really eye-opening,” Warner said.

The literary magazine accepts a variety of work including poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction and visual art. For those that are interested, the guidelines allow five different submissions for each section. 

Straight from the Editor in Chief herself, Warner offers some advice. “Submit more than one thing. Proofread before you submit, and have fun with it. Submit things that you enjoy reading, because we will probably enjoy it too.” 

For artists and writers alike, this is the perfect opportunity to get your work published. The door for submissions will close this Dec. 1, so don’t wait.
