Hill Magazine Poetry Contest Open to UA Students

The staff of Hill magazine, a student-run publication at the University of Arkansas, is asking any and all U of A student poets to submit their original poetry for publication in our 2018 magazine.

Hill publishes once each academic year at the end of November to showcase students' in-depth reporting, photography, graphic design work and artwork, and this year they want to cast a wider net outside the journalism department to feature more student talent. The theme of the 2018 magazine is "No Longer Unspoken." The magazine staff hopes the stories, photos, artwork, poetry and design stir conversation around experiences that students typically hesitate to discuss or even acknowledge. Your poetry submission should interpret this theme. Other than that, the type of poem and length is up to you.

The staff and editors will decide which submissions will be published in print and featured across our social media platforms. To enter the contest, please provide the following information along with your submission in a Word or PDF document in an email to hillmag@uark.edu. The deadline is Oct. 20 at midnight. Direct any questions to Andrea Johnson, Hill editor-in-chief, at afjohnso@uark.edu. Limit three entries per student.

Information needed:

  • Name
  • Year in school
  • Major
  • Cell phone number, email


  • Follow @uahillmag on Instagram and Twitter or @hillmagazine on Facebook.
  • Interpret the theme "No Longer Unspoken."
  • Submit up to three poems in Word or PDF documents, and email all to hillmag@uark.edu by midnight, Oct. 20.
