Fall 2013 A Space of One’s Own

Philomel is currently seeking submissions for its Fall 2013 issue. Our theme, A Space of One’s Own, is a look at the importance of space both mental and physical. We will be accepting submissions from the Penn community at large until the deadline of July 15th, 2013. For questions or submissions, please email philomel@philomathean.org.

Philomel is a non-profit journal for the arts, founded in 1981 and published throughout the year. We seek literary essays, short fiction, epic poetry, original artwork or photography. Submissions should engage with the theme of the issue, which is deliberately chosen to permit a plurality of interpretations. Past themes can be found below. The magazine is intended for free distribution around the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, and among current and alumni members of the Philomathean Society.
