Manastash, the CWU student literary journal, is seeking a cover design for the 2017 edition. This design will be selected by the journal's editorial staff. 

Manastash is scheduled to publish in TBA. Three finalists will be selected by the end of winter quarter. The final selection will be made early in spring quarter.

If images are included, they should have a printing resolution of 300 dpi, saved as CMYK. In addition, you should have copyright ownership of all work and images (if you have purchased an image from a stock gallery, please include relevant information to verify printing authorization).

In addition, your package should contain a PDF proof of your cover. This will be used as a preview for the selection process.

Selection Process
All entries must be submitted by TBA, for consideration.

Cover selection will consider asthetic quality (concept, creativity, and execution), appropriateness to the publication (what best matches the editorial content), preference of the majority of the editorial/design staff (based on secret votes and discussion).
