Tidal Echoes Submission Guidelines

DEADLINE: Dec. 1st (every year)



Tidal Echoes will consider submissions from any current full-time resident of Southeast Alaska. A portion of the journal will be set aside for UAS students. Students of all UAS campuses are encouraged to submit.



We consider fiction, non-fiction, transcribed oral stories, memoir, or drama. Multiple pieces may be submitted, but please limit submissions to three pieces.  Each piece may be no longer than 10 double-spaced pages.  Partial pieces of longer works will also be considered, provided they stand alone as cohesive pieces. Microsoft Word only please.



We accept poetry of all types, but please limit submissions to five poems. Keep in mind that we will preserve the format of your poem in the journal, so it is important to ensure that your piece looks exactly as you would like it to appear on the page when you submit it. Microsoft Word only please.



Tidal Echoes welcomes artwork submissions of all mediums, including but not limited to sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography and drawing. All artwork must be submitted in a digital format (.tif or .jpg) and at least 1800 pixels wide. Submissions must include the title of each piece, as well as the medium. Resources are available on the UAS Juneau campus for scanning and photographing art. Please contact Associate Professor of Art Jeremy Kane at jmkane@alaska.edu with questions. Limit five pieces.
