2023 Spring Institute

The Live Ideas Journal will be holding a spring institute from Apr. 12th-18th at 7-8:30pm. All pieces are welcomed, fiction and nonfiction. The purpose of these institutes is to help students perfect their pieces alongside their scholarly and artistic peers. There is also a $200 scholarship for those who attend all sessions of the institute. The institute will begin on Wednesday, April 12th and continue onto Thursday, April 13th. From there, we will break for Friday and the weekend to give students ample time to work on revising their pieces. We will then meet back up on Monday, April 17th and conclude the institute on Tuesday, April 18th. We will be limiting the institute to eight participants, so make sure you submit your piece early! We will be holding each session of the institute in-person in Eisenhower Hall, Room 8.
