Thó Wiŋ Magazine and I am so excited to tell you that SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN!
Are you an artist or writer who wants to have your work published? Well, here’s your chance.
Thó Wiŋ Magazine is curating our annual literary and arts publication. This opportunity is open to students, faculty, staff, and anyone else in the Augsburg community so tell your friends to submit something too. We accept art of all kinds: poetry, fiction, nonfiction, screenwriting/playwriting, other prose, visual arts including painting, photography, graphic design, drawing, multi-media, photographs of sculptures or ceramics. We can create and print QR codes for short films, animation, video, or music. If your kind of art isn’t listed, submit it anyway! We like arts from all cultures and all skill levels. If you create art in another language, submit that too (but maybe include a translation with it to make it more accessible to us monolinguals). We especially encourage artists with marginalized identities to submit their art so we can uplift your voices! Thó Wiŋ Magazine will put a printed book together and distribute on campus for free.
