Fall Intern, Tidal Echoes
For the UAS Whalesong
Are you an artist, photographer, or writer that lives in Southeast Alaska or currently a student enrolled at the University of Southeast Alaska? Well, you should consider submitting your creative work to Tidal Echoes. This is the regional literary and arts journal, published through the University annually. It is edited and published by a team here in Juneau made of UAS students and faculty.
This is an exciting year for the journal as it is both the 15th anniversary of Tidal Echoes and the 10th anniversary of Professor Emily Wall being advisor for the journal. The journal itself has come a long way from its first publication when it only accepted work from university students!
The Tidal Echoes team strives to have work that shows the many voices of Southeast Alaska on every page of the journal, in any creative form that can be printed and shared. We do require that you be a full-time resident of the Southeast region or a student at UAS to be considered eligible for consideration.
Overall, Tidal Echoes has three types of submission categories: prose, poetry, and artwork. Below each one will be explained separately.
For prose, we take up to three pieces that must be formatted up to 10 pages double-spaced. Partial pieces will be considered, but they must be able to work as stand-alone pieces.
You can submit up to 5 poems. We will preserve the format you submit these pieces in.
For art, you can submit up to 5 pieces, which can include paintings, drawings, photography, and photos of your ceramics. The artwork must be saved and submitted as a .tif or .jpeg. The while also being 1800 pixels wide or more. We ask that when you submit your artwork, you include the title of each piece and the medium used.
Submittable also makes submitting easier. If you want to look at the site or are interested in submitting your work, use the link below to check it out:
25% of the journal is saved for UAS students’ works. Being published in this journal is both a great achievement and fantastic to add on a resume for writing-based jobs or grad school applications. So, please consider sending your work in.
The 2017 submission deadline is December 1 this year and we hope you will all mark your calendars! Even if you don’t submit, you can consider our launch date in the spring, April 14. It’s a fun event that celebrates all the writers and artists who make this journal possible. There’s also free food and readings with the featured artist and writer.
