The Critical Point Update

The Critical Point, Carlow’s annual undergraduate arts and literary journal, accepted submissions from all undergraduate students this month. Like every year, submissions were accepted in the following categories: poetry, fiction, art (2D and 3D), photography, creative non-fiction, and critical writing (essays from all subjects). The deadline for submissions was Thursday Feb. 20, 2020. 

The staff of The Critical Point is currently considering the submissions they received for publication in the journal and display at the Critical Point Exhibition, a new addition led by art history professor, Amy Bowman-McElhone, that will go up in the University Commons this spring. Those who submitted their art or writing will receive an email from the staff saying if their piece was accepted or not. A $100 cash prize will also be awarded for the best submissions in creative writing, art, and critical writing. 

The Critical Point will be presented at the 20th annual Carlow Undergraduate Scholars’ Day on Thursday, Apr. 23, 2020. Scholar’s Day will be between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. in AJP, so make sure to come down between classes and get your copy of the finished journal!
