Mission Statement

The Wellesley Review is a literary organization that seeks to promote and create enthusiasm for literature and the arts within the Wellesley College community. The Wellesley Review publishes a biannual literature and arts publication featuring the work of Wellesley students, faculty, and alumnx.

The Wellesley Review believes that creating and sharing art is one of the best ways to foster positive change. To this end, The Wellesley Review strives to promote the voices of people who have been historically marginalized within white-centered literary and artistic communities. We aim to contribute to a campus culture in which the voices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, LGBTQIA2S+, and first generation students are actively encouraged, highlighted, and celebrated.

The Wellesley Review accepts fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and all forms of creative visual media. All submissions are evaluated anonymously by a board of genre editors.

We are dedicated to selecting the best pieces of work we receive for publication, but understand that metrics of superiority-inferiority are steeped in existing power structures that benefit those already in power. We are committed to challenging those metrics through our actions as well as our words.

The Magazine

The Wellesley Review is evenly distributed across the Wellesley College campus at the end of each semester, but they tend to run out very quickly. If you are currently off-campus and would like a print copy of The Wellesley Review mailed to you, please contact us at thewellesleyreview@gmail.com.

If you would like to see your thoughts published, SUBMIT to us and you could make it onto our website or into our Fall 2020 magazine!
