Submission Period For Brainchild 2016 is Now Open

This is the moment you’ve been writing for.

Brainchild, the premiere undergraduate-only literature and arts magazine, is excited to announce that we are now accepting submissions for our 2016 issue. Our submission period will extend from now until January 15, 2016. During this period we will accept and review all submissions in the following artistic categories:

  • Fiction

  • Creative Nonfiction

  • Essays

  • Poetry

  • Fine Art

  • Photography

Submissions are free and simple—you can track your submission’s progress through our system, and we will notify you when we make any decisions regarding your work. Follow the link below to our Submittable page for further details about the type of submissions we’re looking for, guidelines and other recommendations.

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity: you will have the ability to have your voice heard and your art seen by a network of readers from over 200 universities. Upon selection of your work, our resident team of editors will collaborate with you in preparing it for final publication. All contributors will also receive two complimentary copies of the finished magazine as thanks for your time and effort.

Please do not hesitate to submit your work. We believe that undergraduate honors students have creative talent that often goes unnoticed, and we are here to provide a new platform with which you can flourish. If your art is of quality, it will find a place with Brainchild.

This year, the Mid-East Honors Association will also sponsor awards for the best piece of poetry and best piece of prose submitted to Brainchild. Each winner will receive a $250.00 cash prize.
