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.

Submission Guidelines

Article Submission Guidelines:

  • Intersections seeks to publish outstanding senior thesis work from interdisciplinary programs in the state of Utah and the surrounding region. 
  • Submissions are solicited from all participating interdisciplinary programs through a faculty nomination process. Once submissions are gathered for a semester, they will be reviewed and selected for publication. 
  • Due to the journal’s interdisciplinary nature, authors may submit work in any citation style  appropriate for their discipline(s). The Intersections staff will convert all citations to Chicago format (17th edition) 

Cover Competition Submissions

Cover Submission Guidelines:

  • Submissions should be designed to fit the cover of the journal (17"x11") 
  • Ideally, the cover design will be a template that allows for simple adjustments to be used for multiple issues of the journal's publication. 
  • Submissions should try to visually represent the blending or integration of multiple disciplines (such as art and science). 
  • There is no limit on the number of submissions by a single artist.
  • Various file formats are acceptable, but InDesign files with editable elements are preferred. 

Deadline: November 16th, 2018

Please submit cover submissions here:

The winning cover or cover template design will receive a $100 award. 

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.
