Submission Period Open!

We are now accepting submissions for Volume 11 of The Catalyst! This semester’s theme is “Don’t Stop Me Now.”  We all have a few aspirations in life that we feel we are kept from achieving.  We want to hear and see how you deal with spoilsports that try to keep you down!  Send your submissions and a short bio to us at by November 3rd.  (As always, you’re submissions don’t need to be within the theme. It’s simply a suggestion for inspiration.)  For submission guidelines, click here.

We look forward to seeing all of your hard work!
