It's likely that a good number of you are interested in learning more about the criteria necessary to send in a piece for consideration in Penumbra. You are probably already aware that it must be no longer than 1,200 words and that it can take the shape of poetry, art, non-fiction, or fiction. However, even when these instructions are strictly adhered to, many of the pieces that are submitted end up violating guidelines, which means that we are unable to publicize your work in our magazine. For instance, in order to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, we have decided to cap the number of contributions that each participant can make at a maximum of two. If you submit more than two pieces, it is highly likely that your complete application will be rejected because of a failure to follow the instructions. This is the case regardless of how many pieces you submit. Another issue that has surfaced throughout the course of this semester is the fact that some people are bringing in two separate pieces on the same document, both of which we are unable to accept because we are voting on each piece separately. This is another problem that has arisen throughout the course of this particular semester. It is possible to steer clear of all of these pitfalls, and if you are successful in doing so, the possibility that your work will be published will skyrocket.
We have one more piece of guidance for you, and that is to simply enjoy yourself. Absolutely bear in mind the guidelines, but this is a moment for you to express yourself. Simply be yourself and demonstrate your artistic side to us in any piece that you send in by submitting either written or visual work. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the fact that you decided to contribute your work to our literary publication. Your works have been given our undivided attention and appreciation.
