The Crucible has been UNC’s student literary and arts magazine since the 1960s. The United Student Literary Voices (USLV) selects student work to publish in a bi-annual magazine featuring poetry, prose, creative non-fiction, photography, and traditional and digital art. The club is made up of students of a variety of majors and backgrounds; anyone is encouraged to get involved.
To submit, e-mail CrucibleUNC@gmail.com with your submission attached. Please only include the title and the body of the work in your attachment; include your name in the body of the e-mail.
Writing should be in .doc or .docx format; images can be .png, .jpg, or .gif.
Submission deadlines will be announced for each magazine. You do not need to be a member of the club to submit, although club members can submit.
Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings at 7:15 in the Fireside Lounge of the University Center.
During the meetings the club discusses upcoming events and publications; new members are always welcome.
There will be multiple fundraisers the rest of the semester leading to our end of the year release party for our main edition. There will be more information to come.
