Join the editorial board of Magnificat: A Journal of Undergraduate Nonfiction!

Each spring, Marymount publishes a journal dedicated to nonfiction essays written by undergraduates in a range of humanities courses: history, literature, creative nonfiction, philosophy, composition, etc. Our 2008 edition included creative essays about growing up in Pakistan and confronting homelessness at the Ballston Metro as well as critical essays about the reform agenda of Samuel Beckett and the historical significance of U Street in Washington, DC. Last year’s journal is available online.

Our student editors decide which essays to publish and they help design the layout of the journal. It is fantastic editorial experience! If you are interested in joining the 2009 editorial board, email Dr. Fox at or Dr. Howe at
