Statement of Purpose

Editorial Policies

The Lamp Post accepts submissions via email at thelamppost@montreat.edu. Upon receipt of submission, the submission will be reviewed by members of the editorial staff and faculty advisors. The Lamp Post reserves the right to edit texts received; however, substantial changes are made in consultation with the original creator. Montreat College administration gives final approval before publication.

Creators retain copyright and publishing rights to all submissions without restrictions.

There is no limit to the length of submissions, but shorter (two pages or less) textual submissions are preferred. Visual art submissions should be sent as attachments to an email with the artist’s contact information present.

Selection Criteria

The Lamp Post considers submissions of artistic merit in any publishable form. After review, submissions will fall into one of three categories: Acception Without Revision, Acception Pending Revision, or Decline to Accept. The Editorial Board of The Lamp Post reserves the right to summarily decline works that unnecessarily glorify violence, promote any variant of prejudice, contain illicit content, or do not represent the academic standards of Montreat College.

Opinions presented herein are those of the student authors and editors, and do not necessarily represent or reflect the views of the Montreat College administration, faculty, or staff.
