Submit an Elm Story


An Elm Story is a typical full-length story or article. The content should not overlap with Announcements, Voices & Opinions, Calendar Events, or any other content categories on the Elm.

If the above doesn't accurately describe your content, please return to the previous step and choose a different option.


Summarize your content in a brief sentence or two. The summary will appear as the first paragraph of your content, before the main text.

Copying & Pasting

If you wish to paste content from another source into the main text field, please use Ctrl+Shift+V (or Command+Shift+V on Mac) to do so. Pasting content with this keyboard shortcut strips out extraneous formatting, which can invisibly sneak its way in alongside the content you have pasted. Failure to do so may result in a delay before your submission can be published.


Images should be approximately 300 pixels in width. Avoid submitting images which include text.

Image Alt Text

Image alt text must briefly describe the contents of your image in words, including all significant information that it conveys.

Publication Date

The publication date indicates at what date and time you would like this content to be published on the Elm website. Content must undergo an approval process before it can be published, and so may be published later than the date and time you indicate.

The Elm Weekly

The Elm Weekly is an email newsletter which highlights recent content on the Elm website. To be eligible for inclusion in the next Elm Weekly, your content must have a publication date of no later than the current Wednesday. Not all content on the Elm website will be included in the Elm Weekly.

Appropriate Content

We do require that all content remain civil and, on behalf of the University, we reserve the right not to publish content that we believe is inappropriate for any reason. Inappropriate content includes, but is not limited to, material that is defamatory, profane, culturally insensitive, offensive, or under copyright.
