Louden Singletree Visual Arts Submission Guidelines


To ensure your work will be reviewed by the Louden Singletree editorial committee, please follow the instructions below.

Submission by Email

All submissions must be sent by email, with the work included as an attachment. Although multiple submissions are encouraged, only one submission may be submitted per email. The address for submissions is: louden.singletree@ufv.ca. Please ensure that your email message follows the format provided at the bottom of this page.


Please submit your contribution(s) by December 18, 2015.

Visual Art Document Types

Please ensure that the following guidelines are followed, or your documents will be returned to you rather than submitted:

Visual Arts submissions are comprised of two parts: an artist statement of approximately 200-500 words and a visual image. Submitted images may be drawings, paintings, photographs, documentation photographs of three dimensional work, graphic stories/excerpts from graphic novels* (of up to four pages) or mixed media. Both colour and black & white submissions are accepted.

*Please note that due to printing costs, full-colour graphic submissions might be printed in grayscale and should be rendered compatible for such a possibility.

Files must be submitted as MS Word 97 - 2013 documents (.doc and .docx). Files should be named according to the naming convention as follows: “First initial Last Name Title” (e.g. SJonesWalkinthePark.doc).

Visual Art Document Format

Please use 12-point Times New Roman font for the artist statement accompanying a visual art document. Text should be single-spaced. Include a title or cover page indicating the title of the work, the artist’s name, and email address. To assist in adjudicative neutrality, please do not indicate your name anywhere else in the work. 

With your statement, please re-state the title of the work and include the following information: medium, year of creation, and dimensions. An image of your piece should be included with the text in your word document.

If your submission is chosen for publishing, we will contact you and have you send us a fresh copy of your image file. The visual art files selected for publishing must be in .jpeg format and able to be reduced to 8 1/2" x 14" or smaller (absolutely no less than 300 dpi). This will ensure your piece is printed at the highest quality possible.

Email Message Formatting
