cold-drill was published annually by the MFA Department of Boise State University and would normally be looking for fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction from the traditional to the experimental for our next issue. All of our issues strive to publish work that goes beyond the obvious and that provokes and stimulates us and our community of readers. We are also interested in innovative and interesting visual art.

We take great pride in our design and the finished product, which includes first-time published writers side-by-side with established authors and poets, and feel that a journal should be both visually appealing and mentally stimulating.

Our lovely cover image is provided by Colleen Frakes.


We are currently on hiatus,
as is our economy.
