Please note: The Editors of chinquapin do not write for the publication but can submit work to be anonymously voted on. We collect hundreds of submissions from the wider student body and then create the issue from there. We discuss each and every piece and vote on them blind. We also spend a significant amount of time designing and editing the magazine.

Interested in submitting? 

We accept all forms of work that can be printed in a magazine such as short fiction, poetry, visual art (paintings, photography, sketches, digital art, etc.) or creative work that defies a definition or category. We only accept submissions from CURRENT UCSC UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS.

For the full description of submission guidelines, please visit our submit page!

If there are any questions about the submission guidelines or any other concerns we can be reached at
