"We are hoping to receive a wide range of submissions from all our Southeast Alaskan communities," said Emily Wall, a UAS faculty member who oversees production of Tidal Echoes. "In the past we've received excellent work from many of the communities and this year we hope to have work representing each town and village in Southeast Alaska."
At least 25 percent of Tidal Echoes will be reserved for UAS students, with the remainder being filled by regional submissions selected by the editorial board.
As in past years, Tidal Echoes once again will feature poetry, prose and all forms of artwork ranging from photography and paintings to sculptures, pottery, carvings, beadwork, basketry and printmaking.
The UAS Juneau campus has made resources available for scanning photos and artwork or for taking digital photos of three-dimensional artwork.
"Any artist who would like to digitalize their work should contact Jeremy Kane in the Art Department," Wall said.
UAS asks that submissions are accompanied by a cover letter that includes the contributor's contact information (phone number, address and e-mail), UAS student ID (if applicable), the title of each submission and a short biography of the author or artist.
Individuals can submit multiple works, including up to five poems, 15 pages of prose double-spaced or five samples of art. All work must be submitted in a digital format, preferably as a TIF or JPEG file, via disk or e-mail. Text should be formatted in Microsoft Word or typed directly into the body of an e-mail.
Submissions can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Tidal Echoes, c/o Virginia Berg, UAS Humanities Department Soboleff Building, 11120 Glacier Highway, Juneau, Alaska 99801.
Questions can be directed to Emily Wall at 796-6113. Detailed guidelines can be found online at www.uas.alaska.edu/humanities/tidalechoes/.
