Our undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to publish their work in Queen’s literary journals and various other publication platforms. Queen’s publications include journals founded by the Department of English and digital collections created and run by our very own English students. Publishing as a student provides immense professional advantages, from developing editing skills to being a recognized writer.
Created and edited by Carolyn Smart, the founder of the Creative Writing program at Queen’s, the Lake Effect anthologies are the capstone of our Creative Writing courses. Students in CWRI 496 participate in an intensive seminar in publishing, culminating in a class-produced anthology and public reading. Lake Effect 10, published in 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of the Lake Effect project.
