Queen City Writers is a refereed journal that publishes essays and multimedia work by undergraduate students affiliated with any post-secondary institution. We want to see and possibly publish what your students are composing. We are currently seeking submissions for the fall 2013 and spring 2014 issues; we operate on a rolling deadline basis and will consider your students’ works as we receive them. Please encourage your students from last spring semester and next fall semester to consider submitting.

Our three reviewed sections include Inquiry, 2,500-5,000 word critical essays informed by research; Multimedia, video, audio, or mixed media pieces of 15 minutes or less and accompanied by an artist’s statement that explains purpose, motivation, discussion of medium, and so on; and Storming the Gate, featuring 1,250 to 2,000 word essays by first-year writers in any discipline. We also publish reviews of works relevant to our focus; snapshots of writers and/or their experiences; and comments or responses to work in current issues. We seek thought-provoking pieces from any disciplinary perspective that explore questions and problems related to:
Writing
Rhetoric
Reading
Literacy
Popular culture and media
Community discourses
Multimodal and digital composing

For a full explanation of our focus and submission guidelines, please see and encourage your students to see: http://qc-writers.com/submissions/. We do require a brief faculty verification email for every submission, so please expect to hear from us if your student submits work.
