Inscape is the literary and visual arts journal of Morehead State University. It has been published annually since 1957 and is a collaboration between MSU’s Department of English and the Department of Art and Design.  

The Department of English accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, non­fiction, translations or drama. The works are peer-reviewed by a panel and top selections are included in Inscape.  

The Department of Art and Design offers students two opportunities to have their work juried for publication. Jurors review submissions for both the cover design and the visual artwork published. 

For more information, visit or email Inscape Advisor and Professor of Art Lisa Mesa-Gaido at or call 606-783-2763.
