The Broken Plate , featuring poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, is Ball State’s international literary magazine.

Not only is The Broken Plate an opportunity to be published; it’s a great way to get valuable experience. The magazine is edited by students in ENG 489, the Practicum in Literary Editing and Publishing. The whole publication—the writing, editing, design, even the cover photography—is the work of Ball State University undergraduates.
