Writ in Water

We are now accepting submissions of previously unpublished work for consideration in the Spring 2018 edition of our student journal, Writ in Water! Open only to HBU students, Writ in Water is designed to showcase the best creative work of our very own artists, photographers, and authors.

This year’s theme will be Community. The works selected for publication should incorporate that theme in some way, touching on questions like: what does “Community” mean to you? What does it look like? Do we need it? Why or why not?
