About

STYLUS is the undergraduate journal of poetry, prose, and art at the University of Maryland. Founded in 1994, Stylus was named after the failed literary journal of Maryland native Edgar Allen Poe. Fortunately, this publication has grown and thrived. The community that surrounds Stylus is one of dedicated students passionate about literature and creativity. Since its inaugural volume, the journal has sparked conversations and contributed to the literary culture on campus. We carry on the legacy of our founders and strive to celebrate and foster artistic talent.

Original Logo

The 1998 Stylus logo. In Chinese and Japanese, the logo has a double meaning: it is both representative of the nib of a stylus but also means sharp or pointed writings.
