Submission Guidelines

If you are submitting more than one poem, short story, essay, or script, please include them all in one file (please submit a separate file for each type of submission (poetry, essay, etc)).

Written submissions should submitted as Microsoft Word documents or PDFs.

Visual submissions should be submitted as png files.

Do not include your name or contact information in the text of the submission file; this is to prevent bias from the editorial team while considering acceptance to the journal.

Prose should be no more than 5,000 words.

Poetry and scripts should be no longer than 10 pages.

Pieces in languages other than English will be accepted.

All art must include titles. Artists have the option to include a short description of each piece.

Though submissions cannot be made anonymous to the editors, submissions can be published anonymously or under a pen name; please communicate these desires with the editorial team.


Camas Literary Journal accepts a variety of creative media including short stories, poetry, scripts, non-fiction essays, photography, digital art and more. If it can be printed in a book, we would love to publish it! Up to three submissions from any one student will be accepted but you can submit as many pieces as you like. While the bulk of Camas is student work, we are reserving space in this year's edition for writers who are part of the Linfield Community but not students at the university. This includes staff, professors, alumni, and Yamhill Country residents.

Deadline: December 11, 2023
