UVU’s speculative-fiction journal Warp and Weave is currently accepting literary criticism, short stories, poetry and art submissions for its upcoming publication.
A bi-annual journal that officially became a student-run publication in 2002, Warp and Weave focuses on topics concerning science fiction, horror and fantasy works. Warp and Weave isn’t only a publication avenue for writers but also publishes works of art and photography.
Mckenzie Hess, editor of Warp and Weave since 2009, notes that “contributors to the journal in the past have included UVU students, faculty, and community members, including high school students.” The journal is an effective way of giving science fiction and fantasy works proper attention in literature and art circles.
The journal is the brainchild of Associate Professor Jen Wahlquist. Initial publications were submitted by students enrolled in Wahlquist’s science fiction classes in 1998. With the help of Associate Professor Jolayne Call, the publication ‘warped’ into Warp and Weave and now receives hundreds of submissions each year. Only 20 or 30 pieces are chosen for publication after passing a careful consideration process by a student editorial committee.
Feb. 5 is the deadline for spring submissions. All interested parties should submit their entries no later than 5 p.m. either through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to the English department (LA 114). Official submission forms and complete entry requirements may be obtained from the English department.
