In the Ords: CSUMB’s new Literary-Arts Journal

Toni Morrison once said, “If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Every semester, CSUMB encourages dozens of outstanding emerging creative authors and artists, and we decided it was time to help celebrate their talents in a professional publication.

In the Ords, the new campus literary-arts journal, is entirely staffed, edited, and produced by student volunteers. Its inaugural issue, published digitally in December 2017 on our website (www.intheords.weebly.com), features the exceptional work of eleven students in the genres of poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, and short film. All submissions were judged anonymously by our staff editors, and we can’t wait to publish new editions (hopefully both print and digital) at the end of each semester as we move forward.

In the Ords received official club status in Spring 2018, and we are eager to continue making the most of our opportunities to celebrate the vibrant and vital literary-arts talents within our campus community. If you are interested in joining our staff as an editor or production/marketing manager, please email the editors at [email protected] or contact faculty advisor Kent Leatham at [email protected]. If you are interested in submitting your work for potential publication, please keep checking our website for updated opportunities!
