  6. All submissions (including original artwork and photography) will be considered for publication on the Writers' Block board (ADM 2nd floor), whether published in the Arrowhead or not.

Artwork and digital photography (hard copy and disk) must be placed in the basket on the door of Adm. room 217 by the deadline. We look forward to your submissions!

    **A note to those interested in submitting photography:**
    This issue of The Arrowhead will have a full-color cover. If you are interested in submitting your photo for the cover, please include a color copy AND a black and white copy. This way, if your photo doesn’t make the cover, it still has a chance of being printed in black and white on the inside of the issue. Please only submit portrait-style photos for the color cover opportunity. Landscape-style photos will only be considered for the inside of the issue. 

We look forward to seeing your creative work! For more information, please contact Dr. Janice Fuller (Advisor).
