About Us

On campus since 1947, we are a student run, school sponsored creative publication that accepts work in any form; from poems to short stories to photography and art. Submissions are received and peer reviewed anonymously at weekly meetings, where positive and constructive critiques are recorded and sent back to the author, along with the vote of the staff. There is no limit to how many times an author can submit, nor have many times a piece can be resubmitted if it is rejected. To join the email list, simply email us at themarquis@lafayette.edu.​
