About Us

Euphemism is a creative arts journal edited and produced by Illinois State University students with interests in publication studies and creative arts. We typically publish two issues per year, primarily focusing on creative work such as poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, visual art, experimental sound, spoken word, videos, and original music. We accept submissions from Illinois State University students and artists from around the world. See our submissions page for more information.

While our goal is to provide an outlet for new and emerging authors, we also aim to serve the student community in their creative endeavors and establish a space in which they can gain publication and leadership experience.

If you are an ISU student interested in joining the Euphemism staff, please contact us via our Redbird Life page or email euphemism@ilstu.edu. We are proud to be supported by the English department at Illinois State University.
