Where Students are Editors and Publishers
Etchings Press is UIndy’s teaching press and publishing laboratory. Our students engage with writers from the campus community to across the world, publishing a bi-annual literary magazine and three books each spring, producing a literary podcast, judging literary contests, and collaborating with UIndy’s Hullabaloo Press.
UIndy students judge, design, edit, and publish two chapbooks, one in prose and one in poetry, as well as a novella each winter. The 2019 winners are Savonne, Not Vonny by Robin Lee Lovelace: Dissenting Opinion from the Committee for the Beatitudes by Marc J. Sheehan, and As Lovers Always Do by Marne Wilson.
The Whirling Prize is a student run post-publication prize that chooses two winners that respond to the annual contest theme who receive a monetary award of $500. On top of that the winners participate in a literary podcast and receive copies of a letter press broadside designed by printmaking students of UIndy’s Hullabaloo Press.
