Spires is an intercollegiate art and literary magazine based at Washington University in St. Louis. The magazine is published bi-annually and distributed free of charge to the Washington University community at the end of each semester. We review all undergraduate submissions of poetry, prose, short stories, creative non-fiction, drama, artwork, and digital media.

We are currently accepting submissions from all undergraduates for our Spring 2021 issue. Friday, March 12, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. CST is the official deadline for submissions, but we do accept work sent to the email address below year-round as well. More information about submissions can be found on the Submission Guidelines page.
