Touchstones has been in print since 1997 and is operated by an all-volunteer staff in cooperation with UVU faculty members that share the responsibility of overseeing, editing and production. Touchstones staff members have the opportunity of working with a new mentor professor each semester.
Touchstones is just one outlet by which UVU students are able to showcase their written and artistic abilities. Unlike some university publications that have open submissions, Touchstones showcases works entirely by UVU students.
Feb. 12 is the submission deadline for spring semester. There is no limit on the number of pieces that may be submitted for publication. However, appropriate forms must be submitted with each piece. Writers are encouraged to submit pieces consisting of no more than 6,000 words by the appropriate deadline.
A complete submission information can be found online at http://research.uvu.edu/touchstones/index.html. Turn in your completed form to the english and literature department in LA 114.
