NU Writing: a journal of writing by students for students

About NU Writing

NU Writing is an online journal that publishes compositions made in First-Year Writing and Advanced Writing in the Disciplines, courses that are part of Northeastern University’s Writing Program.

NU Writing began in 2012 and helps students find a wider audience for their compositions and experience publishing, both by learning about the submission and review process and by participating on the journal’s board.

Compositions published in NU Writing are alphabetic and multimodal—written in verse or prose, or composed in multiple modalities, such as image and sound.
