UTC's English Department is home to a number of literary and scholarly publications. Our students often work with faculty advisors to edit and produce these publications.
Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies
Assay publishes the best peer-reviewed critical scholarship of creative nonfiction. The journal explores nonfiction as literature, not simply art, and serves as a resource for writers, scholars, readers, and teachers of nonfiction. Dr. Karen Babine is Assay's editor-in-chief.
Catalpa is an annual publication that explores curious perspectives rooted in the South: the unexpected, unconventional, and unorthodox. The magazine draws inspiration from the catalpa tree, which offers a metaphor for the complexities of the South with its deep roots and diverse, beautiful, troublesome history. Dr. Rik Hunter directs Catalpa.
Midwestern Miscellany is published twice a year by the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature. Guest editors select themes, topics, and submissions for publication and presentation at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature, or at the Society’s panels at MMLA, MLA, PCA, and/or ALA. Dr. Marcia Noe edits Midwestern Miscellany.
