Andrew Turley, editor of the student-run publication, said the magazine provides an outlet to artists and writers, making their work available to the community.
"We are champions of the art. There is a sense of pride on campus that we have an arts and literary magazine published here. We hope to grow it larger."
In the five years since the first issue, its mission has expanded from publishing local work to including artists and writers from around the world. In addition to the print magazine, it also publishes an online edition each fall, and features a story of the month on its website It also has a "live issue" each fall in the IU Kokomo Art Gallery, with an art exhibit and author readings.
The new print edition pays tribute to the prior issues, with a wrap that includes pictures of the covers of all four. Turley said the commemorative wrap also is a bookmark, so it is both useful and decorative.
Eva White, faculty sponsor, said the fall 2012 live edition will be bigger than ever, because artists and writers from previous years have been invited to exhibit their work or perform readings.
"We have many creative people here in Kokomo, and "From the Well House" gives them an opportunity not only for publication, but to meet people interested in the arts. This is a way IU Kokomo enhances the quality of life in our region, by promoting the arts."
Copies of "From the Well House" are available in Alumni Hall this week, or may be picked up in the Office of Student Activities, in the Kelley Student Center Room 210. They will also be available Saturday, April 21, at the Kokomo Farmers Market, 200 E. Sycamore St., Kokomo.
