Conceptions Southwest

Conceptions Southwest has been the fine arts and literary magazine for the University of New Mexico for almost 30 years. The magazine is published annually each spring semester. It serves as a creative outlet and solicits work from UNM undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, faculty, and participants of Continuing Education. Almost any medium of expression is encouraged, but the main categories of submissions generally fall into art, theater, fiction, nonfiction, poetry and photography. The deadline is generally toward the end of the fall semester.

Because each year brings in a potentially new editor and volunteer staff, requirements for each issue are subject to change. Please check for the latest requirements or contact CSW directly.
