Submit fiction, poetry, and nonfiction works in Rich Text Format (RTF) as an attachment. Send each submission as a separate document.
Short stories, essays, reviews, and short plays should be typed in a standard typeface (such as Times) and double-spaced. These works should not exceed 4,000 words. Poems should be typed in a standard typeface and single-spaced, with no more than one poem per page. No submitted manuscripts will be returned. Works submitted online will receive acknowledgement of acceptance or rejection by email late Spring Quarter.
Original photographs, pen & ink drawings, sketches, blueprints, etc. in color or black and white will be considered. (Spring Street prints few color photos; in the past, some color submissions have been published in black & white if their artistic quality was not compromised.) Do not submit your only copy of original works!
Copyright for works published in Spring Street is retained by individual writers and artists.
You may also drop your submissions (each with a separate completed submission form available at each drop box) into one of the Spring Street drop boxes, located at the Library main Desk and in the English Department office, Nestor Hall 420 (downtown campus). You may also mail them, using the submission form available on this site (, to Spring Street, Nestor Hall 420, Columbus State Community College, 550 E. Spring Street, Columbus OH 43215. Again, use a separate form for each submission.
