General Submission Rules

The journal is open to submissions from MALS students, MALS alumnae and current Guarini graduate students. The submission guidelines can be found below:

  • File format: All written work must be submitted in MS Word format. For photography and digital artwork, please use the .jpeg image file format with a minimum resolution of 300dpi.

  • Bio: When submitting your piece, please also send in a brief (2-3 lines) biographical note in a separate MS Word document.

  • Page Limits: The length of written submissions varies based on genre. Critical and research papers are limited to 20 pages double-spaced, creative prose is limited to 15 pages double-spaced, and poetry/art submissions are limited to three submissions (not to exceed 10 pages total). No more than two works by the same author/artist will be published in a single edition of the journal. We are open to considering an excerpt from a larger work as long as it functions as a stand-alone piece and fits into the stated word limits.

  • Formatting: Clamantis uses the Notes-Bibliography (NB) system of the Chicago Manual of Style for citations and references. Authors may choose to initially submit their piece in a different citation format, but if their piece is accepted for publication they will be asked to rework their manuscript in light of the Chicago style guidelines.

  • Copyrights: Authors who have published with Clamantis retain the right to publish that piece elsewhere. However, once a work becomes part of a Clamantis edition, the MALS Journal Editorial Team maintains the right to publish that work indefinitely, in both digital and print forms.
