Focus and Scope

The Cornfield Review Mission Statement:

We strive to represent the literary and artistic voice of Central Ohio by offering area college students an opportunity to see their work published in a professional literary journal. Additionally, we are passionate about achieving a cultural impact that goes beyond local campuses and reaches into the greater community.

The Cornfield Review is published annually. The Editorial Board seeks quality poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in addition to original artwork and photography. Submissions are primarily accepted from students, faculty, and staff of OSU-Marion and Marion Technical COllege, although works by off-campus writers and artists are also accepted for consideration.

For further details and queries, please email Faculty Advisor Ben McCorkle at mccorkle.12@osu.edu.

Publication Frequency

The Cornfield Review is published once annually. Editorial work begins during the winter term, with production duties extending into spring. Printing and final production typically happens during the summer. Hard copies of the issue are distributed to students during the beginning of the following academic year, while digital publication happens sooner.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research, literature, and art freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge and artistic expression.

The Cornfield Review

Since its inception in 1976, The Cornfield Review has published quality poetry, prose, and visual arts from writers and artists hailing from Central Ohio and beyond. Based on the OSU-Marion campus, the annually published journal is a student-run publication currently developed during Winter Quarter in a course on Literary Publishing (ENG 662).
