Who We Are

We are a group of students at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) who have worked together to reinvent the old Aubade, which was inactive. In remodeling this journal and its purpose, we hope to pass the torch of managing this literary magazine to future generations of UMW students.

What We Do

We offer a chance for UMW students to have their pieces published in the University-wide literary journal, even if they haven’t had luck being published anywhere else. We also offer students the chance to work as part of our staff to build crucial skills in editing, design, and leadership.
