The Point welcomes submissions for the website and print journal. The website will be running essays ranging from 1500-3000 words on contemporary arts and culture—we are especially happy to publish anything relating to the Chicago theater or visual art scene. The website also includes a section entitled Points – a short format for ideas. If submitting a Point, please include the Point itself, and not a proposal for a Point. For the print journal, contributors should keep in mind that we have three sections: essays, a symposium and reviews. Essays can be between 4000-7000 words, while reviews can be anywhere from 1000-2500 words. Please include a detailed description of your proposal and writing samples if possible. The Point does not publish fiction or poetry.
