About The Tributary
The Tributary is a literary magazine published once a year in the spring semester. It is student organized and edited in order to best represent the creative works of the A-State student body.
The goal of the magazine is to showcase and celebrate students’ unique voices, as well as to provide students with the opportunity to see their work in print and to gain professionalization skills within the publishing world.
We accept works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography and, while we ask that essays and stories be no longer than 20 pages in length, students are welcome to submit multiple works from multiple genres for consideration.
