With that being said, I am happy to share that Blacklight is now accepting submissions for its fall issue. The first deadline is August 15th. The second deadline is August 30th. We are looking for just about every type of writing and visual art. Feel free to write about your experience as a Muslim student or a Transgender student or a Korean student. Also, feel free to write about your favorite Peruvian restaurant or Black-owned clothing line. Like the flyer says, we want it all. You do not have to be UChicago student to submit and you also do not have to be a college student. I had a few high school students reach out to me and I was pretty excited that this magazine also appealed to younger folks. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, @BlacklightUChi, to stay connected.
There is a really fantastic team of people working to put this magazine together. We are all extremely excited to show you the finished product come October. If you want to submit something to the magazine, please do! We need your writing and art to make this thing work. Send submissions to BlacklightUChicago@gmail.com. You can also email me, Stephanie, at that email address if you want to talk about a possible article idea, have any questions, or want to donate a couple stacks to make sure we can print this magazine. Happy writing!
