The Ignatian Literary Magazine is the University of San Francisco's student-run literary journal, founded during the 1910-1911 school year. Over the years, the Ignatian has appeared in a multitude of iterations, ranging from a lit mag/alumni magazine/sports report to a quarterly publication for the work of students, faculty and staff. 

Now, in its current form, we publish a collection of riveting poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and art from Bay Area residents and beyond. We are currently accepting submissions for Volume 28, which will debut in the Spring of 2016. Please e-mail with any questions or concerns. 

  • Submissions should not have been previously published elsewhere.
  • As we now read submissions blindly, contributors should not have their name on any part of the document itself.
  • Multiple submissions in all categories are welcome.
  • All submissions must be clearly titled.
  • All submissions must include a 50-word third-person bio.
  • Editors' Choice Award: In each literary category, the section editor will select a favorite piece; the author of this piece will then receive a $50 gift card of their choice
DEADLINE -- December 11th, 2015
