Introduction

The University of Richmond’s student-run literary magazine, The Messenger, annually publishes selections of poetry, prose, and visual art. Undergraduate students are encouraged to submit their work as a first step toward an active publishing career. The editors issue a call for submissions in the fall semester, and writers of work accepted for publication are notified in the spring. The Messenger is published in April.
