Submissions for Quadrangle 70 close Tuesday, March 1st, 2022 at 11:59pm.

THIS IS AN UNDERGRADUATE MAGAZINE OPEN ONLY TO THE CANISIUS COLLEGE COMMUNITY

Please thoroughly read the Submission Instructions below before scrolling to the bottom of this page to submit to any or all of Quadrangle's categories: prose, poetry, fine art, and photography. 


We accept anything you can put on paper. Give us your "quarantine creations," your poetry, paintings, collages, short fiction, non-fiction, editorials. Give us your flash fiction, plays, photographs, digital artwork, drawings, printings, and visual creations - both traditional and experimental.  Submissions are accepted from any student, alumnus, or faculty member of Canisius College. 

This year's theme: "Legacy" 

We welcome submissions that touch on any subject matter, but are especially interested in pieces that celebrate and simultaneously ponder the notion of legacies. 2022 marks Quadrangle's seventieth birthday, and in doing so encapsulates the incredible repertoire of pieces, people, and legacies that the magazine has served as a vehicle for––and will continue to serve as such. As we find our footing during rather volatile times, may we continue to speak in creative tongues that allow us to defy norms and challenge the status quo. "Go Forth and Set the World on Fire." - St. Ignatius of Loyola. 

"That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse." - Walt Whitman

ATTENTION: Quadrangle exists to represent the Canisius College artistic community. We cannot accept submissions from those who are not Canisius College students, alumni, or faculty. If you are an artist outside of these bounds, we ask that you refrain from sharing your work with us, as we are limited in the number of submissions we can receive on the Submittable platform. We wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.
