Faculty participating in the readings are Erin Adair-Hodges, Rebecca Aronson, Felecia Caton-Garcia, Carly Harschlip, Patrick Houlihan, Patricia O’Connor, Sandra Rourke, and Jennifer Schaller. There will also be music performed by CNM faculty at the reading.

Leonardo will be both an online and print publication,” said creative arts instructor Adair-Hodges, who with Carly Harschlip, are the magazine’s new faculty advisors. “Previously it was totally print.”

Also different will be the emphasis on training student editors in the submission and editing process, and encouraging more students to submit their work. Adair-Hodges, Harschlip and various English faculty members who lead writing groups at Main, Montoya and Westside campuses will be spreading the word that any CNM student can submit copy for the publication. Student editors will sort through all the entries and decide which ones to include.

Students can submit entries by sending their work to Leonardo@cnm.edu.

“We are looking for a wide variety of voices,” Adair-Hodges said. “We seek poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction and visual art.”

The following are Leonardo submission guidelines:

To submit:

  • Poetry: No more than three poems, five pages maximum. Please attach as a Word document and include “POETRY” as the subject line.
  • Short fiction: Up to two stories, ten pages maximum. Please attach as a Word document and include “FICTION” as the subject line.
  • Creative non-fiction: Up to two pieces, ten pages maximum. Please attach as a Word document and include “CNF” as the subject line.
  • Visual arts: Up to three pieces. Please attach as a jpeg file and include “ART” as the subject line.

A few points:

  • Please save your document with your first and last name and genre (Ex: Adrian Gomez Fiction.docx).
  • Students may submit in all genres but are asked to do so in separate emails. No more than one submission per genre.
