Creative Vision

We are a literary annual that welcomes fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama, literary criticism, and those graphic narratives that can be successfully reproduced into black and white photography.

We serve as a vehicle for emerging writers who attend Barton Community College or reside in one of the seven counties within Barton’s service region.

The editors of Prairie Ink encourage submissions from Barton students, alumni, and community members from Barton's seven-county service area: Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush, Ellsworth, Russell, Stafford; and from students enrolled at the Barton Fort Riley Campus and Grandview Plaza Outreach location.

To submit your work, please email the editors at prairieink@bartonccc.edu.
