Notations, Murray State University's annual student-run literary magazine, publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and artwork. All work is produced, selected, and published by Murray State students. The year-long process of putting the magazine together begins each fall semester when interested students attend organizational meetings to form reading juries and to select editors. Submissions are due at the end of the fall semester, and selections are made in the early spring. The magazine appears near the end of the academic year, followed by a campus reading given by contributors.
