The Montag

The Montag is an undergraduate research journal that publishes original essays, stories, poetry, art and other work by students taking classes in the College of Liberal Arts. The Core Humanities program funds the journal, but all the work of choosing and editing submissions and preparing the journal for publication is done by a team of student editors. Editors are hired before the start of the fall semester each year, and the journal is published once annually in the spring. Montag editors receive a tuition credit to work on the journal.
