Guidelines and Policies

Freelancer is an annual publication of the Amarillo College English Department designed to showcase student, faculty, and staff writing of all kinds. Winning entries from the Amarillo College English Department Writer’s Roundup contest are also included. A new issue is published each spring.

Freelancer invites submissions from AC students, faculty, and staff. You may send us original poetry, short stories, essays, reflections, etc. Submissions may be emailed to a staff member, given to a member of the English Department, or delivered to the English Writing Corner in Ordway 103. We would prefer to receive an electronic copy of each work, either saved on a disk or emailed as an attachment. Submissions must have a name and contact information on them. To be published in Freelancer, submissions must be accepted by staff majority vote.

Each submission becomes the property of Freelancer until after publication of the issue it appears in, when rights revert to the author. Submissions will not be returned unless accompanied by the author’s request and a self-addressed stamped envelope. All submitted works must be original and unpublished.
