Cellar Door, the oldest undergraduate literary magazine at UNC-Chapel Hill, will be holding an interest meeting over Zoom on Friday, September 17th at 6:00 PM EST.


Published twice annually, the magazine has continually published the best poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art of the undergraduate student body since 1974. Over the years, their judges have included everyone from Mark Strand, Téa Obreht, Tony Hoagland, and others. 


This meeting will cover how to apply to join the magazine’s fiction, poetry, and art staff; submit your work for consideration for the Fall issue; or simply get involved in the creative writing community here at Carolina.
