Find out why you should submit to print!

Submission criteria

With each piece, please include the full title, your name, year in school, email and continent(s) pertaining to your work. All submissions must be related to some type of travel, global and/or multicultural experiences. (Travel from within the U.S. does counts!)

Students from all majors may submit, but we encourage you to create content for a wide audience including the entire campus community.

Written work

Souvenirs is open to all writing types and topics as long as they are related to travel. The most popular written work is essays, short stories, reflections and poetry. An emerging form of storytelling on Souvenirs is with listicles (think BuzzFeed style stories): elaborate on a topic in the form of a list such as things you learned abroad, your favorite places you visited, tips for traveling, etc. These are all suggestions, and you may write about any topic related to travel and in any style you prefer.

Written work should be in PDF, DOC, DOCX or TXT format. Pieces should be formatted in a way that you would like them reproduced in the journal and follow standard AP style. Essays that exceed 2,000 words may be edited for length. If there are any additional materials that you would like to include with your piece (such as an accompanying photo), please include them as part of the same submission.

Please name your document as Last name_Title of work (ex: Smith_What I learned studying abroad).

Photography and artwork

All photography art pieces must have an image quality of 300dpi with CMYK coloring. They must be in JPG, PNG or TIFF format (TIFF format is preferred for highest quality). Images should be submitted at their full resolution to allow for proper sizing in the print issue.

Include a document that lists where each picture was taken (city and country). You should be able to submit 10 photographs per submission, but feel free to submit more than that.

Please name your photos as Last name_Country where photo was taken (ex: Smith_Spain). For each photo taken in the same country, add a number after the country name (ex: Smith_Spain1, Smith_Spain2, Smith_Spain3, etc.).

All photos submitted will be entered in Souvenirsphoto contest!

The winning photo of the contest, which will be determined by votes, will be featured on the front cover of the print magazine. Find out more about it here.
