About

Welcome to Scribendi!

We are a literary arts magazine that provides both an outlet for the artistic works of Honors students throughout the nation. We publish creative nonfiction, foreign language with translations, poetry, short fiction, photography, visual art, and open media (new media). For thirty years now, we have presented a stunning, entirely student-produced magazine for you: our readers.

Last year, after many meetings and a complicated process at the University of New Mexico, one third of our funding was cut—our entire printing budget gone. Without the support of you, the community, our thirty-first edition will not make it to print.

It’s rare that such a magazine makes it to thirty. Nearly four percent of literary magazines fail within their first year; according to one study, only 41% were still around fifteen years after their inception. Many editors theorize that magazines have a “natural lifespan” of seven years. So far, we have outlived that “natural lifespan.”­

Over the years, Scribendi has taught nearly 300 students the ins and outs of literary publishing and published 870 students from thirteen states, and 115 institutions. Since 1986, Scribendi has been working hard to increase the readership and representation of artists by printing creative work from across the West, and this year, we have begun taking submissions from across the United States. Your generosity makes the difference!

Your contribution will not only help us print the magazine, but help provide an invaluable learning experience to current and future staff members.
