The White Squirrel

About Us

The White Squirrel is a student-run literary and arts organization sponsored by the University of Louisville Honors Program. We host various creative events every semester like open-mics and workshops. Our biggest project is our literary and arts magazine which we publish every spring that showcases the poetry, prose, art, and overall talent and creativity of UofL students. Our mission is to foster creativity, wisdom, and love for art, writing, and publishing.

If you are interested in creative writing, art, publishing, magazine design, and/or social media outreach, please reach out to us. We’d also like to note that you do not have to be an honors student to join our organization, and members can still submit to the magazine!
