What's Going on at Ursa Minor

Upcoming events and announcements about our literary journal

Every year, students in and graduates of the Certificate Program in Writing, along with students in our visual arts programs, have the opportunity to submit their creative writing or artwork for Ursa Minor, our arts and literary journal. Select students in our Professional Sequence in Editing also can gain career experience by editing the volume.


Volume 4 Is Here!

Our editors and designers worked hard to release the 4th volume last year. Download the latest volume of Ursa Minor (PDF).
