Welcome to The Tower


We are the Undergraduate Art and Literary Magazine at the University of Minnesota: Twin Cities.

The Tower is run by students--just like you. By taking a year-long course offered by the English department, we are able to publish the best work from undergraduates who go to the University of Minnesota. We publish the following:

  • nonfiction
  • fiction
  • poetry
  • and 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 expose original work by undergraduate writers and artists across the University of Minnesota campus. This gives our students the chance to expose their talent to the world, while working with a talented group of editors.

The 2018 edition of The Tower is now accepting submissions! Please click here to submit your work. 

If you still have questions, click here to go to our Submit page. We just announced this year's theme on this page. Thank you for your interest in The Tower, and good luck on midterms!


We rely on your generosity. Please, donate to The Tower today.
