What ties together these essays, stories, poems, photographs, comics, and other bits of aesthetic shrapnel is a common attitude of visceral humanism. We aim for earnest noise. We want to splash in the mud of lived experience, to battle for a radical empathy, and to provide a megaphone to howling assertions of human subjectivity.

Box of Jars

Box of Jars is a collection of words, music, art, and ideas. A space that promotes Auden's notion that poetry is 'memorable speech.' We could extend the idea to say that music is memorable sound, and painting is memorable imagery, and so forth. The three basic tenets we want to uphold are: sincerity, integrity, illumination. The work should be deeply felt and deeply considered; the form of each piece should be purposeful; the experience of each piece should linger.

Collision Literary Magazine

Founded in 2001, Collision Literary Magazine is a student-run publication that accepts poetry, creative non-fiction prose, literary criticism, art and photography by undergraduate students. Our goal is to represent a variety of young voices emerging from the contemporary body, as well as to extend the dialogue by providing constructive feedback to those writers we are unable to publish at the time. Additionally, the top three submissions in poetry and non-fiction prose are awarded cash prizes.
