What's Going on at Ursa Minor

Upcoming events and announcements about our literary journal

Every year, students in and graduates of the Post-Baccalaureate 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 in the Works!

Our editors and designers are hard at work and look forward to releasing the 4th volume of Ursa Minor later this summer or in early fall. Check back to this space for updates!

Volume 3 Is Out in the World

Instructor and editorial staff supervisor Laurie Doyle tweeted after this year's launch party:

"Wonderful launch party: @UrsaMinorLitMag , Vol. 3 is out in the world! Many thanks to William Nichols, Lisa Wenzel, Daniel Coshnear, Liz McDonough @UCBerkeleyExt & many more for this great issue! I'm proud to be part of it. #creativewriting #Authors #amreading"
