On Wednesday, February 11th, students met in the 12th Floor Lounge at Lincoln Center to learn about Fordham's literary magazines. The event, hosted by the Creative Writing Program, showcased the vibrant literary community at Fordham.
Just because you missed the event doesn't mean you need to miss out on the opportunity to work with these amazing publications. Here's some information on how you can get involved.
The Ampersand is Rose Hill's student-run literary magazine. Published twice annually (once in the fall, once in the spring), the magazine accepts poetry, prose, short stories, and photographs/artwork for publication from students at both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. See the Ampersand's submission guidelines here.
Bricolage is a student-run journal of Comparative Literature that publishes both critical and creative writing in multiple languages –– the only Fordham University journal to do so. It also publishes photography and art. Members of the editorial board have control over both the structure and the content of the journal. Bricolage is currently accepting submissions (students from Lincoln Center and Rose Hill are both welcome) to four prompts listed on their website.
Based in Lincoln Center, The Comma meets Mondays at 5:30 p.m. in LL 924 (unless otherwise specified on social media). The Comma is student-run, and workshops every other Monday and does writing exercises on the days they do not workshop. The Comma is published in The Observer twice a semester and they publish the Creative Writing Awards in the spring. The Comma also has two readings per semester. Prose, poetry, and visual art submissions are accepted from undergraduates from either campus. The Comma's next submission deadline is March 13th and their next reading is on March 31st at 7:30 p.m. in LL 924.
CURA is Fordham's preeminent professional literary magazine, focusing on the integration of the arts and social justice. Drawing submissions ranging from France to India, CURA offers students the outstanding opportunity to become involved in a professional publication.
