According to editor Taylor Roth, “Submissions to the magazine should reflect the individualistic perspective of each student. We want to hear your stories and see the way you personally can spark change in your peers with your brilliance. We are looking to prove that with just the power of writing and art we can make a difference in our community.” 

Editor Felicity Crowell adds, “A literary and art magazine is about originality; it craves imagination as well as emotion and expression through words and visual art.” 

 During the Academic Excellence Celebration, the newest edition will publish on the web and in print. Contributors to the magazine will present their pieces in an AEC session.  

All submitted art and literary work is read, viewed and considered by Lebanon undergraduate editors.
