We want to hear about this past year, in exactly seven words. We encourage you to be creative, thoughtful, and, above all, honest in your telling of the last year of your life. Subject matter can be based in whatever you so choose--be it personal, familial, cultural, romantic, political, etc. You can use any medium of writing that you like, so long as it's composed of seven words--no more, no less. Please be sure to include the name of your undergraduate institution and any of your previous publications in your cover letter.

              We accept submissions year-round; however, in order to be considered for our 2021 issue, please submit your seven-word story by September 2nd, 2019.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
