Submission Guidelines

Submit your original art, multimedia creations, writing, and music to the Morning Glory editor at by the deadline.

Submissions can be any art form: poetry, prose, short fiction, dramatic scenes, essays, creative nonfiction, drawings, sketches, painting, sculpture, photography, or music. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Cal Lutheran may submit.

Submission Deadline: January 27, 2017

The Morning Glory staff spends the Fall Semester collecting art, literature, and music submissions from students, faculty, and alumni. In February, the staff gathers at Dr. Wines' house for food, company, and the reading of the hundreds of submissions collected. Using a scale of 1-10, each staff person reads and rates the submissions. The highest-scoring submissions are selected for publication. Authors' identities are concealed until the magazine is published.

Want to join our publishing team and help us create the 2016-2017 edition of Morning Glory? This year’s theme is 500 Years of Martin Luther. We’re looking for pieces that are inspirational, hopeful, spiritual, or directly inspired by Martin Luther. All religions, backgrounds, and viewpoints are welcome and encouraged!
