Typically, Sans Serif is thought of as a font family breaking the boundary between the traditional and the new. As our name suggests, we are looking for a fresh perspective of life in the literary and artistic world. Our journal strives to be un-antiquated and original.
We, Sans Serif, a student-run literary journal at the University of Mary Washington, seek to showcase the truth through reality-based artistic forms. As editors, we realize that oftentimes the truth is stranger than fiction and is the only thing you can ever fully rely on. The fact that non-fiction actually happens makes it infinitely more interesting than fiction can ever be.
We are looking for quality, original and exciting works of non-fictional prose, interviews (video or text), and photography to add to our journal. We are looking for works with a fresh perspective on life, not worn ideas.
We accept multiple forms of prose–memoir, lyrical essays, essays, and interviews with non-fiction writers and photographers. Photography entries may be black and white or color, but preferably not posed or staged. We want to be excited by the works we read and we want you to capture life as it happens.
We want creativity in a truthful medium.
