elementia is a literary arts magazine published to represent and uplift young adults. We accept original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, graphic stories, photography and illustrations. 

Whether there’s never enough ... You’ve got too much on your hands ... Or it’s on your side ... Time, the only constant that is constantly changing, rearranging our lives and brains and bodies by the second. Whether it’s daylight savings, time travel or being late to school, we can’t help but watch the minutes tick by. We welcome submissions for elementia issue xv on whatever timely topic might strike your fancy. But don’t delay, the clock is ticking! Submit original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, graphic stories, photography and illustrations through Feb. 1, 2018.

If you want to stay up to date with elementia please join our mailing list and become a fan of elementia on Facebook.

elementia is generously supported through the Joan Berkley Writers Fund of the Johnson County Library Foundation and the KU School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. After the reception, copies of the magazine will be available at all Johnson County Library locations.
