Creating a narrative-driven arts journal

The Odyssey has been a staple of the Ball State Honors college for many years, and this year the editors want to share the process of creating the annual publication. From reviewing submissions of visual art, poetry, spoken word poems, photography and fiction, to creating a lively online platform and successful open-mic launch party, this presentation will dive into the creative process of the Odyssey. The editors will talk about how they have tied contributions of all kinds from the Honors college community into one cohesive narrative, including its successes, failures, and possible outcomes for future Odyssey co-editors and teams.
