Submissions to the Winter 2021–2022 issue of Folyosó are now open! The deadline for all submissions is January 15.

Folyosó welcomes original English- and Hungarian-language writing, as well as art (including photography), from students of the Varga Katalin Gimnázium and around the world.

Open Call (open to Varga students only): Send us your best writing, in English, in any form (poem, story, essay, dialogue, etc.)–and send us your art. Please read this entire page and the FAQ page for details. To submit a piece for consideration, please email it as an attachment (Word for writing, high-quality image file for photography and art) to diana.senechal at In the subject line, please include the word “Submission.”

Hungarian Feature (open to any secondary school students who write in Hungarian): Please send us your best stories, essays, poems, or other work in Hungarian (to, with “Hungarian submission” in the subject line). Only a few pieces will be chosen.

Art (open to secondary students around the world): Please send us your art. It must be entirely original: that is, not a digital adaptation of an existing work. We will select a few pieces to showcase. The Folyosó website does not allow for extremely large files, so we may have to reduce the size somewhat.

There is no international writing contest this winter; the next one will be in the autumn of 2022. In the spring of 2022, we hope to hold an online event featuring past and present contest winners and other Folyosó writers.

By submitting your work, you are attesting that is original and unpublished. You may quote briefly from other works, but please credit them properly. If your work is original but closely based on another work, please note this in your cover letter or in the piece itself.

Please note that if your submission is accepted, it will be published under your name (no pseudonyms or anonymous entries allowed). This is for three reasons. First, authors and artists in this journal should be willing to put their name to their work; this is a matter of both responsibility and pride. Second, this allows the journal to be taken seriously by others. Third, when you put your name to your work, you allow others to compliment it, comment on it, and ask questions about it.

We look forward to publishing exciting, moving, unusual, and thought-provoking pieces (in different styles, forms, and moods). If your piece is not accepted, please try again with another piece. If accepted, it may still need to go through some revision and editing before it is ready for publication. Any changes will be made in consultation with the author.

We look forward to reading your work!
