Welcome to The Tower


At The Tower, we aim to showcase the best work in literature and art from University of Minnesota undergraduates. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art.


We believe artistic expression is necessary—it has the power to enlighten, challenge, and captivate. That’s why we strive to provide a creative outlet for those who wish to share their work.


Our purpose is to promote and display original work by undergraduate writers and artists. This gives students the chance to have their work published in an esteemed literary magazine while collaborating with a devoted editorial staff.


The Tower is accepting submissions through December 11, 2018! This year’s theme is "Each of Us Is Many." For more information on what this theme means to us, read our recent blog post from the staff. We encourage you to submit pieces that reflect our theme, but it is not required.


Thank you for your interest in The Tower! Help support The Tower here.
