Pwatem accepts art in all media, including but not limited to sculpture, photography, paintings, prints, illustrations, graphic arts, and comic art. In the submission email please include the title of the piece, your name and contact information, and the dimensions and media of the original piece. The file should be a single high resolution, well-documented image in .jpeg, .png, or .pdf file format. The submission may also include a link to an online portfolio.

Film, audio recordings, spoken work, and kinetic imagery can be submitted for website publication.


All submissions are reviewed by our full staff in the order in which they are received. The staff of Pwatem are all undergraduates of various majors so please allow 3-6 weeks for our response. For written pieces, the editors may propose edits. The writer will work closely with one of the editors to develop the piece, meaning that the writer ultimately makes the decision of what will or will not change. This process generally takes 3-4 weeks.

For pieces that are accepted for our website, please allow at least 2-4 weeks for publication.

The editors of Pwatem look forward to reading all submissions.
