Touchstone Literary Magazine

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
At Touchstone, we are dedicated to supporting new voices, and it goes beyond accepting a piece. Emerging writers who are yet to publish a full book of collection, self-published, marginalized, or underrepresented voices are cordially welcome to find a home for their work here. We expect our editorial board will be kind, constructive, and encouraging in their communication process with submitters. We encourage editors to write supportive notes for works we reject and dedicated feedback for accepted pieces before publication. Although we aim to be selective in choosing works, Touchstone strives to be a platform--not a barrier--for artists. Touchstone is Kansas State University's student-edited literary arts magazine, published annually each Spring by the Department of English at Kansas State University.
