Each issue of Blueprint has a unique theme that can be found in the Callout section of our website. Contributors are asked to create writing and/or images based around this theme and send their submissions to submissions@blueprintmagazine.ca . We will be in contact with you shortly following our submission deadline to let you know whether or not your submission(s) has been chosen. .

Anyone! Blueprint Magazine is a Wilfrid Laurier University Student Publication and encourages submissions from Wilfrid Laurier University students. However, each issue we publish also contains works from beginner and professional artists both within the Waterloo Community and across the globe.

For detailed information on submissions, please refer to our contributor’s guidelines.

Blueprint will not publish product or event reviews, academic theses, bad rants, or celebrity profiles. Aside from that, we’re pretty much open to whatever ideas you may have for submissions. You don’t have to “pitch” an idea to us – just send it in and we’ll consider it for inclusion in the magazine.

We sometimes have room for last minute submissions in the print edition, so it’s worth it to at least send your piece in. Late submissions received before the issue hits the stands will also be considered for inclusion on the website. That being said, please always get your submissions to us as soon as you can!

If your piece is not included in the print edition, don’t be discouraged. The high number of submissions we receive, combined with the limited number of pages we have to fill, means that only so many articles can make it in. Quality is only one of the many factors that go into the selection process; we look for pieces that balance one another so that many perspectives are covered.
If you would like to discuss a submission, inquire as to why a submission was not published or ask for tips to improve future submissions, do not hesitate to contact editor@blueprintmagazine.ca .

Sorry, but no. Though we accept submissions from professional artists and writers, we are unable to pay you for your work.

Email editor@blueprintmagazine.ca and we’ll help you out.
