Submissions can be short stories, flash fiction, or a selection from a longer work as long as the selection can stand alone. We will look for evidence of the student's ability to craft a story, but also their ability to consider diction, syntax, and other stylistic elements. 

Applicants may enter up to ten submissions total, in all categories. Thank you for sharing your work with us!

Please look over before submitting:

Nonfiction submissions should represent the truth. But what does that mean? At Atlantis, we believe nonfiction should be honest—to both emotional and eventful truths—that the author must use their best judgment to distinguish the lines between fact and fallacy. While we are inclined to both memoir and new-journalism pieces, we ask that submitters do not add false details and do not write to deceive. An easy way to determine this is to ask yourself "would the people I trust deny these events?"

Roy Peter Clark elaborates in his Creative Nonfiction article, "The Line Between Fact and Fiction":   

https://www.creativenonfiction.org/online-reading/line-between-fact-and-fiction 

With that being said, we still welcome experimental forms of nonfiction work if the writer's vision is clear and present. In fact, I encourage experimentation. But please refrain from submitting academic-style pieces (e.g. argumentative essays). We will not accept papers written to objectively argue a point. Research is crucial. But it shouldn't just be facts and no plot. We want our work to be creative, subjective, and personal. One rule of thumb is: does it tell a story?

See http://brevitymag.com for some great examples that balance both research and emotion—the personal and the universal.

Applicants may submit up to 10 submissions (total, in all categories). There is no theme! Prose submissions should be fewer than 2,500 words (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font).
