Note Regarding COVID19: Texas Tech University has moved all business operations off campus. Our team is working from home. While we will continue to read submissions, our response time may be delayed--we will post updates as we progress and watch the fallout of the virus's spread across the western states.   

Additionally, because we cannot access our supplies, printer, or back stock at the moment, we will NOT be sending out new issues or fulfilling purchases until the shelter-in-place rules are lifted. We will honor all purchases as soon as we can. Spring 2020 issues will be released then, as well. Thank you for your patience.
