Our Policies

Our Selection Process

All submissions are reviewed blindly and rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the highest) by literary and visual art panels assembled from student volunteers. In order to supply an accurate and objective representation of USCA’s artistic community, we ask all panelists to recuse themselves from rating their own submissions, should they have any, and any works that they recognize.

Accepted works are determined according to the highest average rating. Due to space constraints, Broken Ink staff occasionally must determine between two or more equally deserving works, both by average rating and artistic merit. Ties are resolved based on the current publication’s concept or “voice” and Broken Ink’s mission to represent a wide variety of student work.

For a more nitty gritty look at our process, check out the following documents:
