September News

Vermilion is The Catholic University of America’s official literary magazine. Our purpose is to encourage artistic work in our community by providing a platform for artists to share their work with the public. Every winter and spring, we publish a full issue that showcases artistic pieces created by members of the university community. We are currently accepting submissions for our Winter 2022 issue, and we encourage anyone to submit by following this link. We accept submissions of visual art, poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and dramatic art. Submissions for the Winter 2022 issue close on September 16th. 

In addition to publishing full issues, we publish flash issues that showcase the best submissions from our writing prompt competitions. Our staff also regularly publishes essays, interviews, and reviews to our website. If you want to keep up with the artistic work in our community, consider following us on social media and subscribing to our newsletter.
