We are searching for works of fiction by the Clark College community that provoke thought and resonate. Combine your words together in a way that will be like a sucker-punch to the gut. Introduce us to real characters who are in real situations. Avoid the stereotypical and stray from cliché. Capture what is real, both emotionally and physically.

Fanfiction, erotica, children's fiction, and plays will not be accepted. Excerpts or chapters from novels will be considered, but they must be able to function as stand-alone stories.  Please do not submit works that have been previously submitted for consideration to Phoenix unless they have gone through considerable revision

Specific Guidelines (please follow or your work will not be considered):
  • Do NOT put your name on the manuscript (works are anonymously judged)
  • Make sure your title is on the manuscript
  • Double-space your document and use Time New Roman size 12 font
  • Include word count on the first page
  • Include a brief writer's statement that says something substantive about the work
  • Attach submission as .doc or .docx files
  • Do not submit more than 2 works total in any one literary category
  • Edit your work carefully for grammar and spelling
