The Creative Writing Program at IU South Bend is committed to training and involving students in Literary Publishing, and we have been awarded a Strategic Initiatives Grant to develop a Center for Excellence in Literary Arts and Publishing – which we affectionately call CELAP.
CELAP involves students in literary publishing through its relationship with 42 Miles Press and through classroom projects in literary publishing.
Students in W280 Literary Editing and Publishing get a behind-the-scenes look at the 42 Miles Poetry Prize.
Students in ENG-A190 and ENG-A399 Arts, Aesthetics, and Creativity courses publish online and print literary journals, comics, and individual full-length books of image and text.

About 42 Miles Press:
Based at Indiana University South Bend, 42 Miles Press publishes books and chapbooks of poetry, including the winner of the annual 42 Miles Press Poetry Prize, and plans to accept fiction and nonfiction submissions in the not-so-distant future.
Currently we accept submissions only through the 42 Miles Press Poetry Prize Contest. The annual reading period is Dec 1-March 1.
Our first chapbook, The Difficult Here by Christine Garren, was released in spring 2011. Our first full-length book is Carrie Oeding’s Our List of Solutions which released in September 2011. Our second full-length book is Erica Bernheim’s The Mimic Sea which released in September 2012. Recent titles include Bill Rasmovicz’s Gross Ardor, Betsy Andrew’s The Bottom and Allan Peterson’s Precarious.
We’re in Indiana. We like images, we like language. We like it real and surreal and unreal.
