Author Guidelines

Live Ideas is a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal co-produced by students and faculty at Kansas State University. Our mission is to provide a platform from which undergraduates can express their original ideas in creative, unbounded, and meaningful ways. In doing so, Live Ideas accepts a wide range of works, including research, creative writing, art, poetry, and multimedia essays. The journal seeks works that are especially engaging, as is reflected in our author guidelines (see below). Submissions should be alive in the full sense of the word.

All pieces will be re-formatted for publishing. However, to ease this process, we ask that authors/creators please submit their pieces as specified below.*
