General Submission Guidelines for Literary Magazine Submissions

Students may submit as many poems, essays, stories or art pieces as desired. But generally speaking, no author will have more than three pieces published in any one issue of The Wave Effect.

  1. Your submission piece digital file name should include your name, the category and the title of :  Example:  JoeStudent_Poetry_Colors.  Each piece should have a different title.
  2. You should only submit work which you personally wrote or created.  Any group projects should be submitted with the name and knowledge of all creators.  Submitting non original work may subject you to disciplinary action as stated in the THS Student Handbook. 
  3. Create a title for each piece of work you are submitting.

For Writing Submissions: 

•Submissions should in some way highlight the theme: Waves of Color.  Priority will be given to those pieces that are creative and embrace the theme.  

•Each poem, story, or essay must be entered as a separate submission. Submissions entered more than one to a file will be withdrawn.

•Please keep your stories and essays to 1,500 words or less. 

•Please limit poetry to 80 lines.

•Double-space Fiction and Creative Nonfiction.

•Font: you must use Black ink, Times New Roman 12 point Font, Double Space with 1 inch margins including title and heading. One space after periods. There should be no extra returns after paragraphs unless you have a reason for the extra space. The designer may change the font to suit the design, but all submissions must be in the traditional font.

•If you want to send us college essays, they shouldn’t sound like college essays. They should stand on their own as personal essays.
