About This Journal
Sketch is an Iowa State University literary journal that began in 1934. The magazine has featured renowned Iowa State alums like Robert Harkin and Ted Kooser. Over the past 70 years the magazine (one of longest running student publications in the nation) has continued to accept written and visual submissions, which are then selected by a jury board. We currently publish two issues a year, one for fall semester and one for spring semester.
Sketch is a wonderful opportunity for students interested in working with literary publications, but it is by no means limited to English majors. Pick up a copy to see all of the majors that are represented, both by graduate and undergraduate students. It is truly a showcase of university-wide talent.
