A New Year, A New Chrysalis Journey

After a number of years, Tony Procell has stepped down as Faculty Advisor for Chrysalis.  His dedication to Chrysalis, like those before him was inspiring, and I can only hope to come close to the superb job that Tony and his predecessors have done.  

Last year, Chrysalis was the recipient of a number of awards from the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association:


  • Sweepstakes Award
    • Overall Excellence in a Literary Magazine
  • First Place
    • Cover Design
  • Second Place
    • Literary Magazine Essay to Noah Smart (2 awards)
  • Honorable Mention
    • Literary Magazine Illustration: Ernesto Hernandez (2 awards)
    • Literary Magazine Story Package to Ana Deleon and Victoria Arrellano

As we begin our work with the basics of setting up our office and planning for the 2014 Chrysalis, we are both invigorated and excited.  We look forward to the surprise and joy that reading submissions will provide.  

Consider sharing your work with us.  We accept short stories, selections from novels, essays, drama, and screenplays up to 2,500 words, poetry, and works of visual art--both photography and artwork.  All text should be saved in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format.  All visual works should 300 dpi;  black & white preferred and/or high contrast.  

Send your submissions to chrysalis@epcc.edu. Include your name, the submission category, the title of your work, a working phone number, your email address, and a short one or two line biography (20-50 words).
