The Offering


The UMass Lowell Literary Society publishes the annual campus literary magazine, The Offering, which features poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art submitted by UMass Lowell students, alumni, staff, and faculty. Each fall, undergraduate student members may apply for editorial positions on the magazine, a process coordinated by club advisors in cooperation with active club officers.

Anyone in the UMass Lowell community may submit work for consideration for publication in the magazine, with submissions open generally from early November to mid-February, and the magazine appearing in print in April. The club organizes an annual public reading event to launch the magazine each spring.

The club keeps students informed of literary activities on campus through Collegiate Link and its Facebook page. To join the UMass Lowell Literary Society, follow this link:
