Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art is an annual publication that features the very best in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art. We were founded in 1977 and continue to be one of the few national literary journals entirely edited, designed, and produced by students. You’ll find that our minds are open, our interests diverse. We solicit manuscripts from writers we love and select the most exciting finds from our virtual submission box. Above all, our commitment is to our readers—to producing a collection that informs, surprises, challenges, and inspires.
Over the years, the journal has published National Book Award-winners and Nobel laureates, as well as early writing by then-lesser known talents including Tom Perrotta’s first short story and early poems by Alicia Ostriker and Suji Kwock Kim.
Our archives include work by Raymond Carver, Jorge Luis Borges, Lorrie Moore, Louise Glück, Fred Chappell, Kara Walker, Jane Kenyon, James Tate, Philip Gourevitch, Lydia Davis, Stephen Jay Gould, Noam Chomsky, Phillip Lopate, Ha Jin, Jonathan Lethem, Italo Calvino, John D’Agata, Jack Pierson, Sam Lipsyte, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Safran Foer, Wayne Koestenbaum, Deb Olin Unferth, Timothy Liu, and Etgar Keret.
More recent issues have featured new work by Lydia Millet, Diane Williams, Elizabeth Wurtzel, David Shields, Gary Snyder, and Paul Muldoon, as well as interviews with Susan Orlean and Michael Ondaatje.
