Inscape: A Journal of Literature and Art is run and produced by students of Brigham Young University, publishing creative writing and art twice a year. They are currently accepting national submissions for their upcoming online issue.
I wondered how and why this press came to be, so I asked Editor-in-Chief Zach Power a few questions to find out. See my interview with Power and a link to their submission guidelines below.
HOPKINSON: Tell me a little bit about Inscape.
POWER: The journal is published as a cooperative effort of the BYU College of Humanities and the Department of English. The contents represent the opinions and beliefs of the authors and not necessarily those of the editors, the staff, the advisors, Brigham Young University, or its sponsoring institution, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Each fall, Inscape is published both in print and online, and each winter an additional issue is published exclusively online. Submissions are welcome during the first half of fall and winter semesters.
HOPKINSON: How/why was Inscape originally started?
POWER: Inscape was originally started as an opportunity for undergraduates around Utah valley to have their work published and edited.
HOPKINSON: What type of work are you looking for?
POWER: We are looking for anything really. We aren’t looking for anything specific thematically or ideologically. Really, we are looking for literature that exhibits an attention to craft and aesthetics. (Submissions containing explicit sexual content, strong profanity, or excessive violence will not be considered for publication.)
HOPKINSON: What are some of your favorite lit mags/journals?
HOPKINSON: Where can folks send submissions?
HOPKINSON: If someone has a question, how can they contact you?
POWER: We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
DEADLINE: March 16, 2017

NOTES: International submissions welcome as long as they are in English. No previously published work.
