Submission Information

Welcome to The Community College Moment Submissions Page
We Are Not Currently Accepting Submissions

Due to a lack of continued funding, we have suspended the accepting and reviewing of submissions. We would like to thank LCC President Margaret Hamilton and Faculty Professional Development for supporting our last run, as well as those who have helped to review, edit, and publish the journal through the years.

Until recently, The Community College Moment has invited articles, interviews, photographs, artwork, academic and creative writing, and other original work relevant to the mission and environment of community colleges. Submissions have provoked meaningful, progressive inquiry that will appeal on a local and/or national level to an educated, but not specialized, audience. Each issue of The Moment is thematically organized, all or in part, providing multiple perspectives on a given topic. Were we to continue again, the next theme would be Endings, Leave Takings, and Departures.

20XX Theme: Endings, Leave Takings, and Departures

We hope to someday ask for your submissions again.

Submission Categories and Format
The Moment is open to a variety of submission formats, including the following categories: articles (under 5000 words; languages other than English welcome), sabbatical research summaries, plans and reflections on innovative pedagogies, artwork (paintings, photography, sculpture, choreographic projects featured through photographs, musical compositions, etc.), fiction and poetry (relevant to The Moment's audience), works-in-progress (provocative ideas not fully worked out), collaborative projects, and web-based or multi-media projects. We also invite submissions of short reviews (under 1200 words) that offer insights on books and other materials relevant to our audience. Finally, Life in the C.C. focuses on short works (under 1500 words) covering both professional and life experiences of those working at community colleges or in higher education.

We prefer work to be submitted electronically via our email address: Moment@lanecc.edu. Please submit a cover letter as the body of your email, along with two copies of your work, one with your name removed from all pages. In your cover letter, please include a brief, one paragraph biographical note highlighting your relationship with community colleges or higher education. If possible, please submit written submissions as links to Google Docs pages (again, one copy with a name and one without). In written submissions, please use endnotes instead of footnotes, single spacing after periods, and indents set in formatting options (instead of using the "tab" or "space" key). Be clear and consistent in your style of documentation. Art should be sent as .tiff files. Please contact us first for submissions in other media or for text submissions via hard copy.

Please submit in one category only. Send no more than one prose piece, three poems, or four visual pieces. Queries welcome. Mailed submissions cannot be returned unless accompanied by SASE with appropriate postage.

Review Process
Your work will be reviewed in a blind process by two members of the Review Panel, and you will then be notified of their decision. The Review Panel is comprised of community college staff. Currently, our review process runs through February, and submitters are notified in March. Publication for accepted submissions will occur in September 20XX. The deadline for the upcoming publication is suspended. We also accept submissions year-round for future consideration (confirmation notices may be significantly delayed in the summer months).
