Mission Statement:

Founded in 2008, The White Squirrel is a student-run literary magazine at the University of Louisville. We aim to create a welcoming community of readers and writers alike, in order to foster and celebrate the creative writing imagined by our students and faculty. Publishing more than a hundred individuals, our semi-annual issues showcase the talent of poets, fiction writers, and visual artists.

White Squirrel Open Mic

Upcoming Events:

Each semester, The White Squirrel hosts two Open Mic events to provide students and members of the community the opportunity to share their work in front of an attentive audience. The second event of the semester will also serve as a release party for the Spring 2014 edition of The White Squirrel, and will feature readers who contributed to the current issue. For the first time this semester, The White Squirrel will also host a peer workshop for both poetry and prose. Participants will review each other's work and provide helpful tips on editing and revising pieces before the deadline.
