Think Before You Print tip

In the last 20 years, the combined paper usage of today’s top 10 users has increased from 92 million to 208 million tons, which is a growth of 126%. So the use of computers is not slowing the amount of paper we use.

Submission deadline for the 2016 Lincoln Land Review is Jan. 15, 2016!

Final semester projects make great submissions for the Lincoln Land Review! We are reviewing academic non-fiction, poetry, short fiction, digital media and fine art. As the semester draws to a close and faculty are collecting final projects, we encourage instructors to encourage their students to submit their best work in academic and creative writing and digital and fine art to the Lincoln Land Review. Of course, we are also interested in any other work students are proud of that they would like to submit. Students do not have to be currently enrolled in an English or Art class to submit; our last publication actually includes academic writing from a number of disciplines and personal work that students have created on their own!

Submissions will automatically be entered into the 2015-2016 LLCC Writing and Art Contest for a $50 prize in each category. Furthermore, publication in a campus literary journal looks great on a resume or college transfer application, while showcasing student work to the campus community and beyond.

Students can go to the Lincoln Land Review website to use our submission form: lincolnlandreview.org. They can also submit to us or send specific questions directly to LincolnLandReview@llcc.edu.
Thanks for your support of student writing and art!
