For writers, the goal is often to publish their work, whether it is a small feature online or a full series of novels. Fortunately, NKU students have a great record of securing publications! You can start as early as you enter college by submitting to Loch Norse, the creative writing journal, or Pentangle, which solicits literary analysis. Or, you can seek publication outside of NKU, as many of our alumni do. See the list below to check out where NKU students have been published and see their work!
If you're interested in publishing your own work, contact any of the Creative Writing faculty to find out what venues might be best for your writing.
