Writing Prompt Wednesday

Each week, a winner from our Writing Prompt Wednesday submissions will be chosen by Forum staff and featured on the blog.  All winners will receive a free Forum Spring 2014 edition upon its release, and will automatically be considered for publication in either the Spring 2014 or Fall 2014 editions of Forum Magazine!

Whenever you write a poem, story, take a picture, or create a piece of artwork based on these prompts, you can submit it to submissions@forumccsf.org.  In the subject, make sure to write “Writing Prompt Wednesday Competition,” and in the body of the email, please include the writing prompt you used for your piece.

This week’s prompt is:

Thank you for your submissions!

We here at Forum Magazine just wanted to thank everyone who submitted their work!  We received a great amount of submissions this semester from a lot of excellent talent, and we’re busy sorting through everything and making the extremely tough decision of what to include in this spring’s issue.

We couldn’t put this publication together without your wonderful contributions, and thanks to you we’re gearing up for a superb publication to release in May.  Best of luck to you all in the selection process, and once again grazie, xie xie, merci, spasibo, gracias, asante!  Forum exists thanks to you and our wonderful community!

Forum Spring 2014 submission deadline has been extended to February 25th!

Last Day to Submit Work for the Spring Issue

For all of you out there who, like me, tend to wait till the last minute to submit work, now’s your time to shine! It’s now the last minute; the moment you’ve been waiting for. So finalize any remaining revisions and send your work in today. And remember, we accept submissions from anyone who has been involved with CCSF, past or present, whether as a student, as faculty, or as staff. So if you have been or currently are a part of the CCSF community and you have literary or artistic works you’d like to see published, we’d love to see them. We accept works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art, including: short stories, essays, interviews, photography, drawings, paintings, and so forth.

For more information how to submit, please check out our posted submission guidelines. You can also direct questions to our editor at editor@forumccsf.org. Keep in mind too, if you aren’t able to submit in time for the Spring 2013 issue, there’s still plenty of time for our Fall 2013 journal.

As always, submit early and submit often. We look forward to seeing your work.
