Landshark Literary Review is an undergraduate literary magazine at the University of Mississippi striving to represent students’ and young Mississippi writers’ voices and creativity through a diverse selection of content that showcases individuality, originality, and inclusivity. Over the past few months, it has become even more important for students to have a safe space to share their thoughts, emotions, and experiences as they struggle to feel heard and be reassured that they are not alone. Landshark Literary Review believes that literary magazines are important for fostering a community, and one of our goals as an undergraduate literary magazine is to create a smaller community of minds among the larger community of University of Mississippi. This magazine serves as an outlet for students (writers, editors, artists, and readers) to express themselves, release stress, and showcase their inner creativity through stories, poetry and artwork.
We are always striving to expand our (and your) horizons. We kindly welcome submissions of poetry, fiction, and photography and encourage submissions from students of all backgrounds.
