Touchstones, UVU’s student-run literary journal, is now accepting submissions for its Fall 2010 volume. The journal, which is published at the end of both fall and winter semesters, features the fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama and art of UVU students. While each issue is supervised by a creative writing faculty member, the journal is designed, edited and produced entirely by students.
It is also possible to participate in Touchstones without submitting original work. The journal is looking for additional staff members.
“Besides staff for tech editor, art editor, prose and poetry editors, we also appreciate readers. While readers can still submit, they can’t be credited in the current issue, and regular staff members are not allowed to submit, so that’s something to consider,” said Sievers.
Readers help go through the submissions and assist editors with deciding which pieces and works will be published in the journal. Called Reading Night, the event takes place on campus and is a great way to both participate in the production of the journal, as well as read original student-written work.
TOUCHSTONES is holding an opening social on Sept. 9 from 5-7 p.m. in LA 116 for all students interested in working on the staff. Refreshments will be served.
