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 2018 winners are the forsaken…: a collection of stories by Chad V. Broughman, In the Herald of Improbable Misfortunes by Robert Campbell, and Edge of the Known Bus Line by James R. Gapinski.
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.
