What is the Talisman?
We're the forever-present, eccentric and intelligent voice of WKU’s student body. And we would love for you to work with us.
The modern Talisman publishes a life and culture magazine once a semester. The magazine includes feature stories and photojournalism covering the community of Western Kentucky University and Bowling Green as a whole.
We also publish content daily on our website: WKUTalisman.com. The website is a quirky platform for our most creative content. Established in 2015, WKUTalisman.com aims to be a smart and humorous voice in the campus conversation. Our web team exists without creative limits.
Founded in 1924, the Talisman used to be the official yearbook of WKU. The award-winning publication was revered as one of the most professional and best yearbooks in the country. The Talisman broke the mold of traditional yearbooks with award-winning photography and powerful journalistic writing. We're still carrying that freethinking mindset on today.
You can sort of call the Talisman a magazine. You could also call it a website. It used to be a yearbook.
But it’s not just any of those things. It’s the Talisman.
We're always accepting applications for writing, photography, videography, illustration, advertising, marketing and design positions. If you're submitting an application, you should stop by our office sometime to check in and let us know who you are. We hire editors over the last third of each spring semester.
