can submit?

Prism Magazine accepts submissions from the following members of the Princeton University community:

  1. Undergraduate students
  2. Graduate students
  3. Faculty
  4. Staff
  5. Alumni

We also welcome submissions from writers and artists unaffiliated with Princeton University who express a compelling interest in being published in our journal.

What do I submit?

Prism Magazine accepts a wide range of submissions, everything from short stories and artwork to poems and essays. The following is a list of work we accept:

  1. Short stories (fiction and nonfiction)
  2. Poems
  3. Essays
  4. Criticism and commentary
  5. Original reportage
  6. Interviews
  7. Artwork (drawings, paintings, prints)
  8. Photography

While Prism Magazine prides itself on being open to a wide variety of submissions, we would advise interested contributors in focusing the themes of their works on topics related to diversity, difference, and international affairs.

Important Note: All submitted work must be original and unpublished. Documents must be submitted to prism@princeton.edu in .DOC or .DOCX format, while graphics can be submitted in .PDF or .JPG format.

What is the editing process?

Every year, Prism Magazine recruits a new staff of editors to work on our Fall and Spring issues. If a piece is accepted, an editor will work directly with the contributor in copyediting and polishing the piece. The editors-in-chief are the last ones to look over the entire issue and address any concerns that may arise during the editing process.

Do writers get paid for accepted work?

At this time, all accepted work is unpaid. Contributors outside of the Princeton community will receive two to three copies of the issue they are published in.


Please address any inquiries, proposals, or suggestions you may have to prism@princeton.edu.
