Metaphor is Weber State University’s undergraduate literary journal. Published each spring annually, the magazine features original poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, interviews, and art. Metaphor’s chief aim is to encourage WSU students to express their ideas through creative writing and the arts. Additionally, student staff members gain valuable editing, graphic design, publishing, teaching, and event planning experience. The journal hosts biannual open mic nights at local bookstores and stages a spring gala in conjunction with each issue's publication. Print copies are freely distributed on campus, in the wider community, and to the National Undergraduate Literature Conference participants. The editors encourage students from all backgrounds and disciplines to submit their best work.

Check us out on Facebook and Instagram @metaphorjournal, where you can find updates, information, events, staff bios, and more. We at Metaphor love fostering a community of writers, readers, and creators, and we'd love for you to join in on the fun. Please join us for a fall Open Mic on Friday, November 20th @ 7pm.
