Call For Submissions

Writing Prompt Wednesday:

It’s another week, that means it’s another Forum lab! Today’s topics include cover choices, finalizing choices and table of contents (look for acceptance emails once that’s done), copy-editing and getting pestered by me for blog material.

While you’re waiting, take a moment to write something fun based on the below prompt.

Today’s prompt is:
A Secret Someone Else Doesn’t Know

Make sure to follow all submission guidelines and in the subject line include “Writing Prompt Wednesday”. In the body of the email, please include the writing prompt you used for your piece.

Thank You and Pictures

Thank you so much to everyone who made our Forum Spring 2014 issue launch party such a success!  Big thanks especially to: Bird & Beckett Books for so graciously hosting the event in their fabulous bookstore (seriously check it out, it’s amazing!), our contributors for producing all the immensely beautiful content in this issue, to our advisors and staff for putting in the long hours needed to get the work in print, CCSF’s graphics department for dedicating their talents to the layout, and to everyone who came to the launch party to show their support.

A special thank you to Bill McGuire, whose tireless efforts to raise money for the English Department social fund added up to a very generous donation to support our production costs. We still get all teary just thinking about it.

If you’d like to buy an issue of Forum’s Spring 2014 issue, please stop by  Bird & Beckett or the CCSF Ocean Campus Bookstore.  Each copy is $10, and all profits go toward funding future issues of the magazine.

If you’d like to work for Forum next semester, we’d love to have you!  Just apply through CCSF (applications are open to everyone) and register for English 35L.  Or, if you’d like to submit your work to be published, please visit our submissions page for more guidelines.  The Fall 2014 submissions deadline will be in September.

Have a great summer, everyone!  Before you take off to enjoy backyard BBQs and camping trips by the lake, please take a minute check out photos of our launch party over on our Facebook page.  Just click the pic below:
