student writing

The Department of English is seeking submissions from writers and artists for our annual literary publication and contest.

We are looking for students to submit all different types of writing including:

  • Academic essays
  • Creative nonfiction
  • Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Visual art

Any student who is currently enrolled or who has been enrolled in a Purdue Northwest course within the last two years may submit work.

If a students work is accepted they will be published in the 2021 issue of PNW’s literary magazine, Furnace, available in hard copy and electronically.

All accepted writing will be automatically entered into competition for the Stark-Tinkham Writing Awards.

All students whose pieces are accepted for publication will be honored at a release party for Furnace. (Time and date to be determined based on health and safety.)


Students interested in submitting their work should visit the website.


Please contact Bethany Lee or Sarah White.
