Revisions Week 1

by Kristen Vasquez

Once we have the pieces selected for the journal, it is time for revision! And the Touchstones team has been working away this week getting through the first round of revisions. Though we have accepted many amazing pieces, editing and polishing these works pushes creativity so they are ready to shine their best when printed in the journal. 

This process is long and takes hard work and effort from our editors and the authors we are working with; however, this is probably the most exciting part of the process. Working one-on- one with the authors and talking about the details of their work makes everything we do more meaningful. Through all the small choices, we see the details and excitement that go into creating the imaginative writing pieces that will contribute to this semester’s amazing journal.
