F&M Alumni Arts Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions are open for Volume V of the F&M Alumni Arts Review.  Our theme this year is SIGNS.  Deadline: November 22nd, 2015.

With your submission, please include a short cover letter and a brief bio that includes your graduating year. Please include your name as you want it to appear throughout the Review. We request that you take a look at our sample bios (below), and make sure yours falls within these parameters. 

Your graduating year will follow your name (Joe Smith '76). Please include your major and write about yourself in the 3rd person. Limit: 75 words or less. We encourage you to include contact info if you like (email and/or website); these count as one word each. 

Example 1: Marcie Doe ’10 majored in English with a concentration in creative writing. She currently resides in Anytown, Colorado, where she is the founding editor of The Anytown Review. She has published two collections of poetry through an independent publishing company, and in 2012 was a finalist for Significant Press’s annual poetry contest. Her poetry can be read, her books purchased, and her email address found (and she hopes you'll read/purchase/write) atwww.marciedoe.com 

Example 2: Edward Jones ‘57 continues to explore the artistic territory to which he was introduced in a much-loved photography course with Professor Right. He majored in business administration and minored in classics, and enjoyed a fruitful career with a Washington, D.C. advertising agency. Now retired, he lives with his wife, Holly Smith-Jones ’59, on the Chesapeake Bay, where they love to walk their dogs. Please be in touch! ed&hollyjones@email.com
