Pseudonym Required

Welcome to Pseudonym Required at Digital Commons!

This website is home to the creative writing of student authors at IWU. At Pseudonym Required, our goal is to help students become better writers by providing feedback to the authors and offering them a chance for their pieces to be published. Our main focus is helping authors improve their writing, but our submission and revision process is also designed to give us an opportunity to showcase the creative talents of our fellow IWU students. All of the pieces published this year as well as our archives of past publications are located on this site. Take a look at some of our student writers’ work!

For more extensive information on Pseudonym Required and news regarding deadlines, workshops, and anything else going on in the world of PR, please visit the Pseudonym Required Blog.

If you would like to submit an article, please click the “Submit Article” button on the right side of this page. If this is your first time submitting to us, make sure to read about the submission process at the Submission Guidelines page. We look forward to reading your pieces and working with you to improve your creative writing.
