The Laurel is St. Bonaventure’s campus literary magazine and the oldest continuously-published college literary magazine in the United States. The magazine is published in the spring.
All are welcome as contributors: current and former students; current and former faculty, staff, and administrators; and members of the surrounding cities and towns. Contributions of poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, photographs, and non-photographic visual art are welcome.
All editorial decisions, including the selections of work to publish, are made democratically by staff members—all of whom are current students. The current co-editors-in-chief are Tori Wangler '21, Tucker Reilly '23, and Matthew Villanueva '22.
The faculty adviser of the Laurel is Dr. Sara Nicholson. The faculty adviser does not participate in the editorial operations of the magazine.
