Warp & Weave

Warp & Weave is UVU’s premier publication for science fiction, fantasy, horror, and other speculative fiction. We consider any speculative piece that's in a printable medium: comics, plays, artwork, photography, poetry, short stories, etc.

As with the other student publications sponsored by the English and Literature Department, Warp & Weave’s editorial staff is comprised entirely of current UVU student volunteers.

Warp & Weave publishes original short fiction, poetry, and artwork by UVU students, area high school students, and other contributors from the extended community.

The journal offers awards to authors for the three best pieces published in prose, poetry, and art.
