The deadline for Spring 2021 submissions is March 5th.

How to Submit:

This semester the magazine will be accepting submissions by email: send your work as an attachment to When attaching documents, please rename files to include your last name, the submission type, and piece title (i.e. “KapitanProseStorytitle”).

What to Submit:

We accept poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, and art (photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, prints, paintings, etc). Windfall is looking for the best Truman students have to offer. Therefore please only submit work that is in a finished form. If you are submitting a non-fiction work, please use your best judgment in concerning real people. If you feel the persons named in your story would be uncomfortable being mentioned in a publication, then please change the names or obtain permission from those concerned before submitting. Windfall holds the author responsible for the any material submitted. Windfall does not accept anything including pornographic or excessively violent material. Windfall does not accept submissions that contain specific identifying information about Truman students or faculty.


Due to printing constraints we request that any single prose piece be no more than 10 pages long, double spaced, and in Times New Roman font. We strongly encourage that each author submit no more than 12 pages of poetry, 20 pages of prose, or 25 pages total for poetry and prose. For artwork we encourage that you submit no more than 15 pieces.


All pieces are shown anonymously to the Windfall staff.

By placing these guidelines we at Windfall hope to encourage you as the author/artist to more carefully consider what you want to submit. We hope that you take pride in each piece that you give to our consideration.


This page is subject to change. Submission to the magazine is considered consent to the guidelines.
