  • Spring 2015: Creative

    Palaver is extremely interested in exploring interdisciplinarity in not only in content, but also in form.  This is why we accept creative pieces, multimedia submissions, and multimedia-text hybrids.  All creative/multimedia submissions should be accompanied by an interpretive essay that reveals the interdiscplinary nature influencing your creative work.  This essay will be published with your creative/multimedia piece, should we accept it.  Please submit your essay as a separate Word document from your creative/multimedia piece. These written essays should be double-spaced and follow MLA guidelines if applicable. 


    Please do not include any identifying information on your uploaded submission.  Only fill out identifying information on the form provided by Submittable.  If your submission includes your name in the content and cannot be removed (e.g. the credits of a video), don't sweat it. Should you have any questions regarding the multimedia submissions process, please e-mail
