Founded in 1998, Meridian has featured the works of numerous Pulitzer Prize Winners, National Book Award Winners, and established writers. However, as a magazine edited by young writers, we value nothing more than showcasing tomorrow's talent, often publishing a new author's first story or poem.

Like most literary magazines, we recommend reading our journal before submitting. To read the latest issue online, click here. Our editors are MFA students, emerging authors who aspire to create tomorrow's literary fiction and poetry, and that should tell you something about the kind of work we're looking for: fresh, new writing. We're not hugely experimental (publishing mostly realist fiction and lyric/narrative free verse) but we're open to works that play with form and reader expectations, as long as the work is serious in its efforts and treats our readers with the respect they deserve. Literary nonfiction is welcomed.

I've always loved to write, and have recently been exploring more genres than ever before, mostly due to encouraging professors. Poetry was an early love, and last year I challenged myself to write one each day. I'm currently in college, and wanting to gain more experience with writing, as it's something I'll probably go into in some form career-wise. Memoirs are interesting to me, as well as creative nonfiction and journalistic pieces. I've never had a real writing group, and would love the chance to connect with people who share my interests. I'm an insatiable reader, and am excited to see what others have been writing as well!
