Metamorphosis, A North American Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity

Metamorphosis is an ongoing opportunity to PUBLISH FLC STUDENT WORK. Each semester, we will select two outstanding student papers to submit for online publication in Metamorphosis, A North American Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity.

Because of the due dates, we always work one semester behind. In other words, you can submit excellent student work from Winter/Summer for consideration in the Fall edition of Metamorphosis and excellent student work from Fall for consideration in the Winter edition.

We already have many fine FLC students represented in the 2010-2014 editions of Metamorphosis. Further, many Spring editions starting in 2013 also feature the top paper from the FLC Campus Writing Awards.

How Can FLC Students Get Published?

Student proposals (shorter versions of final papers, listing a faculty sponsor) will be due via email by week four of each semester. Our review committee will select the two most outstanding proposals, with the winning authors and their faculty sponsors then having about three weeks to produce and submit a final 10-page paper before the journal submission deadline. The final paper will then appear in the online journal Metamorphosis.
