Issue Update

Due to some publishing issues, we’re releasing our Fall 2013 at the beginning of next semester.


Congratulations Seniors!

We’re sorry to see some of our editors and staff members leave, but as the semester draws to a close, so does their time here at Volition. They’re a wonderful group of people the rest of the staff and editors at the mag wish them all the best as they move on out into the world. Congratulations and good luck to

Alana Hackes – Prose Editor

Henry Leeker – Poetry Editor

Raven Jenkins – Public Relations Officer


Happy New Year!

We hope everyone got fantabulous final exam scores and that the semester went well for everyone. We also hope everyone had a wonderful, safe, and fun-filled winter break and see you in a couple days! We’re excited to release the magazine from fall semester.

The Volition staff hopes you had a wonderful and delicious Thanksgiving!


The end of the semester is quickly approaching and you know what that means — the magazine is about to come out! We’re placing the orders sometime this week so expect issues to come flying in before winter break starts.

We’re more than excited to release our issue — and we know you are too! — so here’s just a little peek:

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who came out to Open Mic Night last Thursday! It was a lot of fun listening to so many great performances from musical acts, poetry, prose, spoken word and, of course, raps from our very own 2White4Life.

Pictures will be posted up soon.


Please remember that our submission deadline — NOVEMBER 1ST — is quickly approaching! If you happened to perform last Thursday, we definitely encourage you to submit your stuff. Send in all your prose, poetry, art, photography, and even spoken word! Yes, you can now submit your all spoken/performed acts as an MP3 and we’ll post it up on our website. #SoExcited.

Spring 2013 Theme and Deadline

Hi everyone,

Volition’s Spring 2013 deadline is March 18, 2013

Spring 2013 Theme Prompt: 

Take one of your experiences that you have rarely talked about and use it as inspiration for your poetry, prose, art, and photography. Be creative! You can choose to express this through focusing on an emotion, or single moment of that experience, it does not have to be an exact account of what happened.

When submitting your work to Volition, please be sure to say that your work is in response to the theme.
