300 Days of Sun

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


300 Days of Sun is a student run literary journal sponsored by the Nevada State College Humanities Department. It is a print journal featuring poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art. We accept original, unpublished work in English from writers living in the Southwest, including Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas.

We are now requesting submissions for our third issue, which we will print in March of 2016. Copies of the journal will be available for purchase at 300daysofsun.com and through the Nevada State College Bookstore.

We are looking for exceptional writing in all forms about any topic, but our theme for this issue is addiction. We encourage you to consider this theme liberally, stepping outside clich├ęd addiction narratives (e.g. substance abuse or unrequited love) and exploring the nature of human desire and the challenges of controlling it. Writing about other topics is acceptable, but works involving this theme will get extra consideration. We also like to see prose, poetry, and art that involves Las Vegas, the desert, and the West.  

All reviews are anonymous, so please do not include any personal information on your submission. Submissions with personal information in the document will not be evaluated. Also, we encourage multiple submissions, but you will need to submit each work individually. For example, if you want to submit four poems, each poem should be its own document and its own submission.

  1. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but we ask to be informed immediately if a work is accepted elsewhere. Again, each submission should be its own document.
  2. Authors own the rights to their works, although 300 Days of Sun assumes first-time publication rights
  3. All contributors with accepted works will receive a copy of the issue in which they appear.
