The Freestone

The Freestone was published annually by the English Department at Colorado State University.

About the Name: We chose the name Freestone—which refers to a mountain stream with a bed composed of slowly shifting stones—because it is an apt metaphor for the nature of change in English departments. Except during the spring runoff (or massive budget reallocations), those changes typically come slowly, and aren't always noticed by a student who is here for only four or five years. Nonetheless, over time, accumulated changes can result in profound differences.
