Literary Magazines in the Library

Walking down the main stairway to the lower level of the library, just through the glass doors to your left, in the TV lounge you will notice a wall lined with literary magazines. Purchased for the Creative Writing Program, these magazines publish new poetry, fiction and experimental writing. Many are published by colleges and universities, whose students and faculty contribute their work.  The collection has been maintained, in part, by student donations.
