Welcome to Uproar

Uproar invites writers of all genres to submit their works written in consideration of our monthly theme. Once per month the moderators will select the best submissions and publish them here. See “About Us” for submission criteria. We are limiting the number of times we will publish work by the same writer to three per year.

Writers aged 9-16 should submit to the Young Writers category. Emerging and aspiring writers who feel they need to further hone their skills before submitting to Uproar or who simply would enjoy more frequent give-and-take with local writers should submit to Community Corner.

Please see below for our monthly theme.

    1. Thank you for your question. Generally we prefer to limit submissions to quality material that fits within the monthly theme. Although we’ve selected fairly broad themes to date, we also recognize that the occasional open theme might well be welcome. We are therefore making November one such month, with the theme of “Open Season.”
      Over the past two months, Uproar has attracted submissions from a range of writers and poets, including established, published writers; emerging poets seeking their first audiences; and very young poets. This is good, but requires a bit more curating on our part. While we can suggest minor edits, we cannot offer extensive editing services. Perhaps once COVID passes, we can organize an editing event at the Lawrence House. In the meantime, look for some online guidance in essays coming soon to our Writers’ Forum.
      Effective immediately, we are adding a separate category for submissions from Young Writers age 16 and under.
