Submission Guidelines

Are you interested in sharing your knowledge with the rest of the student body? Have you attended any conferences or taken an interesting or worthwhile class outside of the department? Would you care to review books or nearby bars for us? We are interested in your contribution! Anecdotes, articles, poems, art work and more! We encourage all submissions relevant to students at the iSchool. Please email all submissions to the Silverfish.
