The Flintlock is Nebraska Wesleyan University’s student-run literary and visual arts journal. It is published annually in the spring. Students serve on the editorial board, soliciting submissions of creative writing and visual art, making selections, designing and editing the volume, and doing all of the layout and production work before sending the final manuscript to the printer. Flintlock staff positions give our students valuable workplace skills in publishing and editing.
Through the generosity of alumnus Kevin Boatright (’74), student work in Flintlock is eligible for Boatright Awards in poetry, prose, and visual art. The Boatright awards are judged by nationally known writers who have participated in the English Department’s Visiting Writers Series.
