The Wellesley Review believes that creating and sharing art is one of the best ways to foster positive change. We aim to contribute to a campus culture in which the voices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQIA2S+, and first generation students are actively encouraged, highlighted, and celebrated.

Your voice matters. We thank you for sharing it with us, and we can’t wait to receive your work!
