The Pick accepts submissions year-round!
Call for Submissions
To be considered for publication in The Pick, works must be submitted in one of two ways.
- Faculty members may submit student works they feel are exceptional.
- Students may submit works themselves with a faculty member’s approval.
Upon submission, all works are subject to an anonymous, peer-review process, wherein the editorial board is looking for quality, content, organization, and creativity. Students whose works are conditionally accepted shall be required to meet with a member of the editorial board to discuss necessary revisions prior to publication.
All submissions must have been created originally in fulfillment of a Southeastern course assignment and be accompanied by proper submission documentation and release forms. Documentation and release forms can be obtained in the Writing Center, by emailing email@example.com, or via the links below.
- General Submission Guidelines
- Students may submit as many works as they wish; however, only one work per student shall be published in each issue.
- No work that has been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere shall be eligible for publication in The Pick.
- All submissions must have been created originally in fulfillment of a Southeastern course assignment.
- The Submission Information, Release Authorization, and Instructor Comments sections must be completed in their entirety.
- Work shall be submitted in the form of one hard copy and one electronic copy on a CD, DVD, or e-mail attachment, sent to the proper party (see the appropriate submission form for the specific address).
- Written works must adhere to the most recent edition of one of the following citation styles: MLA (Modern Language Association), APA (American Psychological Association), Chicago Manual of Style, or Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers.
