It’s a whole new year

This Side of West is back for the 12th year of publication. We’re excited to welcome a new team of editors and can’t wait to share our writing with the world.

Submission details will be announced shortly, so get editing!

In the meantime, we’re hosting an editor’s reading November 21, 7pm, on campus. (We’re still firming up the location. We promise you’ll be the first to know.) So, mark your calendars and join us for a night filled with words from all four genres: creative non-fiction, drama, fiction and poetry.

The best way to stay informed on all This Side of West happenings is to “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Psst, we may or may not be announcing a fun Twitter competition very soon!

Talk soon,
The TSOW team

Happy New Year, all!
