There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Clamor is open to submissions for the 2023 issue until February 1st.

Clamor is the University of Washington Bothell’s annual Literary and Arts Journal, representing the best creative practices in literary, visual and media formats from across our campus and the surrounding community.

Our goal is to support and promote captivating, inspiring, and lively art in the forms of visual, literary and media work.

In keeping with the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Science's core learning objectives, we advocate arts across all disciplines. 

We provide artists and authors with publication opportunities through our print edition and our website. We foster community by reaching beyond the UW Bothell campus borders for creative works and by offering audiences quality reading, viewing and listening experiences. 

Please note: Clamor does not accept work that has been previously published. We accept simultaneous submissions. Please withdraw your work if it has been accepted elsewhere. For clarification email

As is standard with creative works, all rights revert to authors and artists after publication. Submitted works may be featured in future Clamor promotional campaigns without alterations unless given written/verbal consent from the artist. 

Clamor publishes artistic content in all forms, including visual art, creative writing, foreign language works (with translations by the artist), media, video and audio. We also accept recordings of original performance or dance. Our print journal includes: poetry, prose, creative non-fiction, photography, painting, drawing, digital art, visual images of sculpture, pottery, jewelry, and graphic art. Our web edition also includes media content: video, music, audio art and experimental media, as well as documentation of performance work. 

The Clamor editorial board acknowledges we are on ancestral lands stolen from Indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast. We recognize UWB campus sits on the original territory belonging to the sts'ahp-absh (willow people) and pay our respects to elders past, present, and future. We value and encourage submissions from Indigenous voices.
