Submission Guidelines

Who can submit
Current students, faculty, staff and spouses are preferred (though exceptions may be made).

Articles:
Maximum length for all unsolicited articles is 800 words, though shorter articles are welcomed. All submissions are subject to editing for both clarity and length. Book, movie, and CD reviews should be no longer than 200 words. Also, Letters to the Editor should not exceed 200 words.

Visual Art
Works submitted in digital format is preferred (300 or 600 ppi). No promises can be made about the quality of the printing, however, though black and white photographs and line art will reproduce best.

Fiction and Poetry
Et Cetera welcomes submissions of fiction and poetry. The word limit for such submissions is 800 words. However because editorial revision is more difficult with these submissions, longer poems and stories may not be printed the same week they are received.

Anonymous Articles
Approval of anonymous publication will be granted on a case-by-case basis. All such articles must include the author’s name and phone number when submitted, along with a written request for anonymity. The identity of an anonymous author will be held in strict confidentiality.
