UAFS Applause Literary Journal Now Accepting Submissions For Its 33rd Issue.

The UAFS Applause literary journal has opened submissions for its 33rd issue featuring the theme “evitable ending” and will continue to accept admissions until March of next year.

Applause is an annual, full-online publication from the UAFS undergraduate english, rhetoric and writing program. They accept work from undergraduate programs around the world that focus on fiction, creative nonfiction, visual art, and photography.

Applause has been a part of the UAFS community for over 32 years. It was first started by Anne Winters, a former UAFS English Professor, and is currently being run by UAFS students as well as Dr. Christion Anton Gerard and their current student president Sarah Chiles.

Each year, the Applause picks a theme they want submitters to use to help guide the work they showcase, with this year’s theme being (In)Evitable Endings. They have asked artists to focus on how they end their work. Once the artist knows how they would typically end their piece they must now try to either re-work or completely change it, so they can avoid the “evitable ending” they would have used. Their website states, “Imagine the ending. Avoid it. Then Send it to us.”

Submissions are now open on the Applause website. Each submission has a $3 fee. The journal will be accepting contributions to be accepted until March 14th of 2023. Applause will pick a handful of submissions to be featured in their 33rd issue. These artists will receive a $25 contributor award.
