  • We recommend that your submission be less than 10 pages or less than 10 minutes if submitting performance pieces.

Volume 51 Submission Process

The class is broken up into different selection committees based on the genres accepted in the journal. Each committee works together, looking at many different “aesthetics” within each genre and different editors, to come up with a selection criteria.

The committees work through their selection criteria to perfect it by testing out many pieces before looking at the submissions from that year. Works are shown anonymously to eliminate any bias. As a committee, they look at each anonymous work and score it based on their selection criteria.

The works that score the best are selected to be published in the book. Only after the pieces have been finalized can the committee know the names of the authors published.

We also adhere to the CLMP regulations of ethics, which you can find here!
