Judging Information

After we receive your submission, it is reviewed anonymously by the staff of Silver Quill, and undergoes a two-step review process. You will be notified if your work has been chosen for publication.

During first review, the staff vote yes or no for the piece's inclusion in the magazine. All pieces with a majority of yes votes make it to second review. During second review, the staff rates the piece on a scale from one to five. Finally, all pieces above a certain average rating are considered by the exec staff and faculty sponsor.
