Submissions still open!

Hi again, and welcome to the Spring Semester, Vike writers!

Look at this, it’s an update on Issue 16 progress! Submissions have been coming in steadily, but we always need (read: want) more. We’ll be accepting fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, screen & stage plays as well as comics in all genres until February 2nd, 2018. Don’t miss out or you’ll have to wait until next year.

We’re planning on featuring first-year writers from WRIT 100 this year in a reading towards the end of the semester, details forthcoming.

If you have any questions about submitting or the journal, send them to

Submissions should be directed to and full submission guidelines can be found by clicking through to the “Submission Guidelines” tab on this website.

Happy trails!
