The Broken Plate

The Broken Plate is Ball State University’s international literary magazine, accepting submissions from both students and outside writers for publication in the spring semester. The submission period is from Sept. 1st to Oct. 31st. Currently, we accept creative nonfiction, poetry, and fiction.

Notice how I used the first person plural there? Yes, I am lucky enough to be on the staff for this year’s issue, as a poetry editor. Joining me in the poetry ring will be Writers Community’s own Layne Ransom, along with some of our wonderful classmates. Additionally, Writers Community officer Elysia Smith has been named Lead Fiction Editor. We are all excited to join the ranks of current Writers Community members, such as Ashley Ford, Jeremy Bauer, and Ryan Rader , who have served on the Broken Plate staff.

Have you seen the past two issues? Oh you should! Five bucks will get you both as a special on the Broken Plate website. First person to do a guest post wins a copy of both from me for FREE. E-mail writersatbsudotedu for more info.

I encourage all Writers Community members to represent themselves and the WC well by submitting and hopefully publishing in this year’s issue of The Broken Plate. You could join the likes of Mark Halliday, Jimmy Chen, and Judith Skillman, among others, as writers in past issues of The Broken Plate. Best of luck.
