Want more Spec on campus?

The Spectatorial is hosting some events in the next few weeks, check it out below!



So…what is speculative fiction? Don’t worry if you’ve thought it – we get that a lot.

Come join us this Friday for a rundown on what spec fic is, what kind of fiction we accept, and how we edit everything. We’ll even give you tips on how you can make your submissions standout from the rest!

DATE: Friday, October 7th
TIME: 2-4pm
LOCATION: Hart House, South Sitting Room

And remember, if you want to submit your fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or artwork to The Spectatorial to be published, the due date is October 23rd! You can find more info on submissions here.

*Note: In the interest of fairness and anonymity, The Spectatorial‘s editors will not be able to look over or give specific suggestions on work you plan on submitting.
