Talking Leaves

Submitting Content

Submission Deadline for Volume 26 is April 2, 2023

All IUPUC and Ivy Tech students, as well as alumni graduating within the last year, are invited to submit previously unpublished original works of art, prose, and poetry for publication. Submissions are accepted year round; submission deadlines are announced after the launch of each issue.

To submit content, please follow the link below. Click on the genre tabs to find instructions for submission in Art, Poetry, and Prose. If you have more than one submission, you need to submit each piece separately; you may use the same bio blurb for each form, but every individual piece needs a complete form in order for us to keep the work anonymous during the reading period.

Complete the submission form
