How Field Works
Current IU Kokomo students are eligible to submit work to Field. We have several deadlines throughout the year to ensure that your work is received in time for our student editors to consider it for the upcoming volume of Field.
Currently there is no limit to how many pieces you may submit. In the interest of representing diverse student perspectives, our board will accept at most two pieces in a given category from a prospective contributor.
Our editorial board begins reviewing submissions in the fall, and they continue through early spring. Our primary submissions deadline is September 30. Our secondary submissions deadline is December 21.
All submissions to Field undergo a rigorous process of blind peer review by our board of student editors.
Prospective contributors will be contacted in early- to mid-spring regarding the status of their submissions. We ask that prospective contributors respond promptly to emails and communications from our board, as our print timeline is tight.
Many factors affect our ability to accept submissions for publication, and we encourage prospective contributors to submit work every year, as our ethos and content vision may vary from volume to volume.
