About Blended

About Blended

Established by students and faculty, Blended is an annual journal that offers students an opportunity for recognition and publication. Submit via the Blended Submission Form.

We value pieces that showcase, interrogate, collaborate with, and bedevil your artistic and intellectual camps. We value the emotive truths of your diverse experiences and the ordered chaos of your budding scholarship. We call for quality. We call for works that call back.
