The William and Mary Review

The College of William and Mary's Official Literary Review

About Us

The Review is the College of William and Mary’s official literary and artistic magazine. Staffed entirely by students at the College (and its University affiliates), The Review publishes short prose, poetry, and visual art. The magazine was established in 1962 by the merging of campus publications The Royalist and The Seminar. The mission of the William and Mary Review is to gather works from talented writers, poets, and artists around the world and compile them into a yearly literary and art magazine, with the intent to enrich the minds of the magazine’s readers, both in the college and outside of the William and Mary community, and to expose the works of our contributors to greater audiences.
