Calls for Student Writing.

Mid-America Theatre Conference Playwriting Symposium: The Playwriting Symposium invites proposals of 10-minute scripts around the theme of “Character.” This is a juried event, and while we invite all playwrights to submit, the call for scripts is directed primarily at academic playwrights who are faculty members or graduate students and/or professionals in the field who seek the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback from a respondent and peers. First-time conference attendees are welcome to submit!


"Do you want to write about Movies, TV, Anime, Arts, Comics, Games, Literature or other art forms? Do you want to get your foot in the door and enter the big-wide world of the online media and have your work read and shared by millions of readers? We invite you to The Artifice, an online magazine that covers a wide spectrum of art forms." Visit our website for more info. 

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has posted a useful guide to undergraduate journals in art and literature.
