SUBMIT YOUR WRITING & ARTWORK FOR THE SPRING 2023 ISSUE
Exponent II is always accepting submissions on any subject. The best essays start as everyday stories. Something happens to us that we did not expect, or we react to something in an unexpected way. We had a script in our mind as to how a scene would play out; then the story changed and we found ourselves in a completely different narrative. Notice these moments as you move through life; think about moments like these in your past life. These moments are the stories that spark interesting essays.
With one of these ideas in mind, ask yourself a few questions and jot down the answers.
• What was I expecting? How was I living in the world before?
• What happened that I did not expect?
• What were the details of the moment – what led up to this point, what was going on with the main players; what was the setting; what
were the reactions of the bystanders; what did I see, hear, smell, taste, and feel?
• How was the world different afterward? How was I different? How is it now?
We are seeking a balance of fiction and nonfiction through short story, personal essay, and visual artwork.
Written submissions are due by January 15, 2022. Please follow the guidelines. Authors and artists should identify with the mission of Exponent II.
