Submission Guidelines

Departure Literary Journal is a student-run journal that is currently looking for submissions from YOU! If your writing takes people away or your music transports the reader to another world, then we want it. Genre is unimportant just as long as it has the ability to bring the audience along for a journey. While we like the idea of literature taking us away, we are not looking for anything that is primarily escapism.
