SEEDS Literary & Visual Arts Journal accepts anything from poetry to prose, to
sculptures and photography, Seeds hopes to provide a medium through which the
members of the university community can showcase their talents in the visual and
literary arts. We are the avenue to diversity in artistry; it is embraced and encouraged.

We are dedicated to fostering inter-community collaboration among those with
a vested interest in the arts, in an effort to empower writers and artists.

We aim to help aspiring writers and visual artists in the NEIU community
and beyond, whether it is your first time submitting or your 10th time.

We hope that you will continue to submit to SEEDS beyond your time at NEIU.
