The Bluffton University Literary Journal
The beginnings of Bridge
Founding editor Jamie Lyn Smith envisioned Bridge as a student-driven endeavor. Bridge set out to show that ‘the best young writers age 14-24’ are creating high-quality work of literary merit on a par with other well-established literary magazines.
Bluffton University students served as editorial assistants: soliciting, selecting, editing and polishing the works.
The first print edition, which rolled off the presses in spring 2017, showcased poetry, short fiction and non-fiction stories, drama and art from 20 young writers and artists representing eight different states.
The first online edition of Bridge: The Bluffton University Literary Journal attracted submissions from young authors from across the country and overseas and went live in December 2017.
Young writers, between the ages of 14 and 24, are invited to submit works for consideration for
publication in Bridge: The Bluffton University Literary Journal. Our editorial associates are looking for writing that demonstrates virtuosity and
wonder, original writing that delights and challenges us.
If you are interested in submitting your work for consideration for a future edition, please review these details for submission.
