Now in its third year of operation, Punctuate. is a growing nonfiction publication made possible through the English and Creative Writing Department at Columbia College Chicago. We publish content once a month and seek nonfiction that manifests in a broad array of forms such as essays, memoir, multimedia and hybrid works. 

You can check out our Facebook and Twitter for Punctuate. updates.  


We are mostly volunteer-run, so our turnaround is roughly eight to twelve weeks. Multiple submissions are accepted. Simultaneous submissions are accepted but please let us know if your writing is accepted elsewhere. 


Have a book you think we might like to review? Or an author who is interested in an interview? Please send us a message through Facebook
