About

Elements, Western Illinois University’s Literary Magazine, has been publishing creative writing and artwork from WIU students for over 50 years.

Each year a small group of dedicated student editors read and respond to all submissions; make editorial decisions concerning content, aesthetics, and presentation; and organize an end of year release party that includes readings from contributors. These activities are facilitated and supported by the faculty advisor, who is associated with the English and Journalism Department in Simpkins Hall.

Please contact Dr. Erika T. Wurth (ET-Wurth@wiu.edu) if you would like to be involved with Elements.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the editors by email: elementswiu@gmail.com
