Dear Correspondents,

I am a former correspondent myself, and now I’m a liaison for Utah State University’s literary journal, Sink Hollow. I’m announcing a Call for Submissions for creative works of fiction, non-fiction, art, and poetry. We accept undergraduate submissions from all over the world, and the deadline is April 9. But right now, I am asking for your story as Neighborhood News Correspondent.

As a former correspondent for NNC, I met some amazing people who do a lot of great work that goes largely unrecognized. It has shaped who I am as a person, as a professional, and as a writer. What stories or events did you cover that deeply affected you? What interview stuck with you the most? Here is your chance to turn your experience into a work of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or art. This is also a chance for you to showcase your creative talents in a way that may be inappropriate for journalism but is encouraged at Sink Hollow.

If you are interested, please go to and follow the submission guidelines (again this is for current undergraduate students only). It is also important to see if your style is the right fit for a journal before submitting, so please check out our issue for Spring 2018.

PS: Your submission can be about whatever you want, but you are encouraged to share your story as a correspondent.

Thank you for the important work you have done and are still doing, and happy writing!
