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 thepick@selu.edu, 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.

  • 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.
  • If non-academic sources are used (i.e. Wikipedia), students may be asked to find alternate sources.
