About Us

Euphemism is a creative arts journal edited and produced by Illinois State University students with interests in publication studies and creative arts. We publish two issues every year, along with special issues. Our goal is to publish all kinds of creative work, including poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, visual art, experimental sound, spoken word, videos, and original music. We accept submissions from Illinois State University students as well as other artists around the world. If you are interested in joining the Euphemism staff, please request membership through our Redbird Life page. You can also message us through Redbird Life if you would like additional information about our organization. We are proud to be supported by the English department at Illinois State University.
