Info from Euphimism:
“The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly” — Please join the Euphemism staff on Wednesday Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. in CVA 145 for an open-mike reading. We invite writers to read from their own work (you choose where your poetry, spoken word, flash fiction or experimental writing fits our schema!). We ask that you read for no more than 4 minutes; how you delight, horrify, or challenge us during this time is up to you. Meet other writers from across campus and learn more about Euphemism, ISU’s online creative arts journal. At the reading we will also raise money through our 2nd annual chalk-off. For 25 cents we’ll immortalize your short poem, flash fiction, or aphorism on the quad.
The submission deadline for the Euphemism Fall 2008 issue is October 17. We accept fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, new media, short film, original music, sound instillation, graphic design, photography, spoken word. We also now accept comic strips! Please go to www.english.ilstu.edu/euphemism for submission guidelines.
Euphemism also seeks review essays of university sponsored readings, plays, concerts and films. We accept essays of varied lengths (no more than 5,000 words); we are interested in thoughtful and generous responses to creative events here at ISU or in the community.
