A Kent State Trumbull staple since 1966, ICON is a poetry and art magazine that is published once each year, near the end of spring semester.
Submissions are welcome from anyone, and the magazine is proud to boast that it receives poems and artwork from not only around the country, but around the world. ICON publishes the winner of the campus's yearly Hart Crane Memorial Poetry Contest, which is judged by faculty from the Kent State Trumbull English department.
For previously unpublished poem(s). Submit no more than two poems. The award honors the work of Hart Crane (1899-1932), one of the leading modernist poets in America, who spent part of his youth in Trumbull County. The poem will be published in 2017 ICON: Magazine for Literature and Art.
ICON is available free to Kent State University at Trumbull students, staff, and faculty. Those off campus may purchase individual copies of ICON for $4, or subscribe for $8/year (two issues).
