TAR Call for Student Cover Art!

TAR Call for Student Cover Art!

The ALAN Review (TAR) is looking for cover art from students for our next 2 issues:

  • YA in Action (activism in YA) due by 1/30
  • Unthemed issue due by 5/01

As many of us are back with students in the classroom, we wanted to remind you of this opportunity for students to get a piece of their poetry published as cover art for TAR.

The guidelines are as follows:

  1. Art must be in the form of a found poem (See previous cover examples below)
  2. Must be in portrait orientation
  3. Text must be from a YA novel
  4. Poem should correspond to the theme of the issue (something about being online/virtual, activism, and then unthemed can be anything!)
  5. We prefer color, but black and white is fine as well.

If your student wants to submit a piece or has questions about the process, email us at tar@utk.edu.

Your student would receive a copy of the journal upon publication and a byline if they want to reveal their name! Feel free to circulate this with all the ELA teachers and librarians in your lives.
