Oct. 30, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Organizers of WMU's only undergraduate journal have put out the call for submissions for the publication's second issue.

Student poetry and prose submissions for The Laureate, a professional journal launched last year, are due Friday, Nov. 1, in the Lee Honors College. All undergraduate students are invited to submit works of fiction and nonfiction. Poetry is limited to three pages, while the limit is 1,500 words for other work. Electronic submission is preferred but not required. Pieces will be judged for style, form, quality of writing, meaning and length.

Visual artists are also invited to participate in a cover art contest. Photographs, paintings, drawings and other visual work are also due Nov. 1.

The Laureate is sponsored by the Lee Honors College. For more information, contact Editor Melissa Matlewski at <m9matlew@wmich.edu>.
