Can't help picking up that pen, paintbrush or Pentax? Want the world to see your your creative side?

Haute Dish can help.

The editorial staff invites students to submit to the Summer 2009 edition. We would like to publish your poetry, short fiction, short personal essays, graphic stories, comics and artwork.

The submission period is currently open to current Metropolitan State students.

Please send your submissions to and include a cover letter (with a short bio) in the body of the email.

We will take about four weeks after the April 20, 2009 deadline to review all the submissions, and will be in touch with you shortly after. If you have not heard from us by May 11th, 2009, please email us at




Submissions are open to alumni, students, faculty and staff of Metropolitan State University.

In the cover letter, please provide your Metropolitan State University Status, your name as you would like it listed, a max 150-word bio written in third-person, and the genre(s) of the piece(s) you submit. Please also beware that submitting to an online magazine can mean that your piece may not be formatted exactly how you want it to be due to constraints of the medium. If this will be a major problem, please also address that in your letter.

All written work should be submitted either in the body of the email or as a .rtf file. All artwork must be in .jpg format, include a title, and be at least 800x600 pixels.

Poorly copyedited writing, no matter how brilliant or creative, often gets rejected. So please be sure all writing is thoroughly copyedited.

If you need help with your writing, all along the way from your first draft, to revision, to polishing a piece right before submitting it, The Writing Center can provide invaluable support. Email them to schedule an appointment. For large video or audio submissions, please contact the Haute Dish webmaster, Kenny Bellew, for submission assistance.


Summer 2009 Deadline: April 20th, midnight
