Important Information

Intersections is a student journal sponsored by UVU's Integrated Studies Department which provides exemplary students from multiple disciplines the opportunity to publish in a peer-edited journal. Intersections is written, edited, and designed by UVU students and published each Fall and Spring semester.

Intersections' Mission

Each editorial team makes its own decisions about what will be published. However, here is a summary of the type of work accepted and Intersections' mission as a whole: 

Intersections includes work from any and all disciplines on campus. We accept written work including but not limited to poetry, prose (fiction and non-fiction), academic papers, essays, short plays, found poetry, and comics. We also accept art including but not limited to paintings (oil, watercolor, etc.), photography, comics, pottery, metalwork, printmaking, digital art, and collages. The purpose of Intersections is to give a home to excellent writing and art that may not otherwise have one and to create a unique interdisciplinary experience.

Written Submission Guidelines:

  • Submissions may include poetry, prose (fiction and non-fiction), academic papers, essays, short plays, found poetry, and comics (just to name a few.)
  • There is no limit on the number of submissions by a single author, however, a maximum of three pieces may be published in the same issue.
  • Written submissions are limited to 4,500 words, not including the bibliography.
  • Due to the journal’s interdisciplinary nature, authors may use whichever citation style is appropriate for their discipline.
  • Remove all identifying information from the Word document before submission.

Getting Involved as an Editor

Getting involved with Intersections is a great way to add practical experience to your resume or vita. You'll become familiar with the process of choosing academic and creative works for publication. You'll also learn to work as part of an editorial team to make submissions conform to publication standards. Finally, Intersections teams do the technical layout and design by themselves and this knowledge (using tools like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop) is highly marketable.

If you’d like to see what it’s like to be on staff of Intersections please contact Lilly Leiran at uvuintersections@gmail.com and/or attend Reading Night on Monday, September 19th to help us select this semester’s written submissions.
