In the 1990s and early 2000s contributors to Quirk came from the UIW community, independent writers and artists as well as from students and faculty at other colleges and universities across the United States.

A high number of submissions in recent years from just the UIW community have led to a shift in the journal. The focus now is solely on the works by students, faculty and staff at the University of the Incarnate Word.

We would like to sincerely thank all contributors to Quirk for making this journal an excellent literary and visual arts publication.
