Spirit Lake Review

Spirit Lake Review, the annual campus literary magazine, was founded in 2004. Spirit Lake Review publishes fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and art by UW-BSC students and by community members. The magazine is distributed locally and stocked on campus as well as at The Village Booksmith and the Coffee Bean in Baraboo. Circulation of the magazine and contributors’ readings give students opportunities to share their talents with a wide audience.

Editors: The Spirit Lake Review editors enroll in English 205: Literary Magazines (AP/EL), a 3-credit course that meets Wednesday evenings in the Spring. Editors gain practical knowledge in literary magazine production work and learn what they love about language and literature. Publishing responsibilities range from selection of pieces to final proofreading. The editorial staff handles every aspect of layout. The English 205 instructor serves as faculty advisor to the magazine’s all-student editorial staff.

The class is stimulating, rewarding, and fun. Students really appreciate the fac that when the semester is over, they have produced something tangible: a top-notch college literary magazine.  

Support & Submissions
: Printing of the magazine is possible due to generous support from Capital Newspapers. The creativity is generously provided by the students and community members who contribute!
