Where Students are Editors and Publishers

Etchings Press is the University of Indianapolis’ teaching press and publishing laboratory. Our students engage with writers from the campus community and 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 to receive a monetary award of $500. On top of that, the winners participate in a literary podcast (Potluck Podcast) and receive copies of a letter press broadside designed by printmaking students of UIndy’s Hullabaloo Press.
