  2. Can I submit creative writing to Anthós?
      Because Anthós focuses on scholarly works, we do not publish creative writing. Portland State University students are encouraged to submit their creative pieces to Pathos, the PSU student-run literary magazine, linked here.
  3. Can I submit my Honors thesis to Anthós?
      Because completed Honors theses are already published on PDX Scholar, Portland State’s open access repository for scholarly and creative works, Anthós will not consider Honors theses for publication.

      Additionally, Honors theses tend to be longer than our required word count (2000-3000 words) For more information about Submission Guidelines and Formatting Requirements, please visit our Submission Policies page, linked here.

  4. Does Anthós accept simultaneous submissions (submitting the same work to more than one journal at the same time)?
      No; if you choose to submit to Anthós, we ask that you refrain from submitting elsewhere until the Board has notified you of our decision.
