The diamond line number 5

The diamond line is a literary magazine made by the students of ENGL class 3903. Issue 5, created in the spring semester 2022, is now available online at thediamondline.uark.edu!

The digital version was created by the editorial staff and includes all works found in the printed magazine. It also contains information about current staff, the course, and how and when to submit your work for publication.

The diamond line is seeking new submissions of original fiction, poetry, and visual arts for Issue 6, coming in Fall 2022. Other arts media are encouraged, and the publication is expanding its creative reach. The new submission period opens today, May 9.

The Literary Magazine features the best creative work by U of A undergraduates. Students can email their submissions to litmag@uark.edu for staff review and can expect a decision in the middle of the fall semester.

Multiple submissions are permitted and encouraged. If your work is accepted elsewhere, let the editorial team know. More information about the process and requirements, as well as examples of past magazine issues, can be found at thediamondline.uark.edu.

Submission guidelines:

  • Include your last name and the genre of your work in the subject line of the email (ex: last name of student_poetry submission).

  • Poetry packs can include up to three poems but cannot exceed 12 pages.

  • Fiction is limited to 5,000 words.

  • Visual art should be formatted as a scanned copy or high resolution image.

  • Students must include their name, ID number and a cover letter with their submission(s).
