Submit to Chrysalis
Chrysalis Wants Your Work
By Logan Bradt & Ivy Rivero
Chrysalis is anticipating a fruitful new year full of great submissions, and members of the staff are happy to announce that the magazine will continue to be produced on a biannual schedule. This allows publication of more of the Ferrum community’s original content, as well as making it more easily accessible. The staff is excited about plans to print a terrific edition of Chrysalis this semester.
All types of original, unpublished visual and literary art submissions are accepted from anyone in the Ferrum College community. These include photography, visual art pieces, poetry and prose, both short stories and essays.
The winners of last semester’s contest were Lauren Manbeck with her photograph “Haunted,” Emily Bowman with her drawing “Mim,” Katherine Sessor with her poem “Time is a Game Played Beautifully by Children” and Brianna Johnson with her short story “Forged by Thunderstorms Draped in Sunrises.” Second place prizes went to Eunji Kim, Danyelle Fletcher, Olga Glaskova, and Rhett Norris.
The staff is grateful to the college’s Integrated Programming Board for providing last year’s prize money and happy to announce that prizes will be awarded again this year. There will be $100 given for first place winners and $50 for runners up.
The deadline for fall semester submissions is Oct. 25.
Unfortunately, Chrysalis is unable to publish everything, since so much work is submitted, so the staff has to choose what actually makes it into the magazine. The work must follow these guidelines to be considered:
Short stories and essays must be able to fit on four pages or less in the magazine; poetry must be able to fit on two pages or less; and the number of pictures that can be submitted is limited to ten photographs.
Currently Chrysalis is working on a website to publish most submissions, especially those that are not able to fit in the magazine.
All submissions are to be emailed to Dr. Katherine Grimes, advisor to Chrysalis, at email@example.com.
Word documents should be submitted in Microsoft Word, and images should be sent as .jpeg files.
