Carolina Quarterly

Established in 1948 as the successor to the Carolina Magazine, the Carolina Quarterly is a student-run literary journal. Originally limited to the work of students, the journal soon opened its pages to other writers, becoming a publication of national significance in the process. Renowned authors such as Don DeLillo, Annie Dillard, and Joyce Carol Oates have published in the Carolina Quarterly. In an interview in 2008, novelist Robert Morgan, who had edited the Quarterly as a student at UNC in the 1960s, referred to it as a "venerable institution" at Carolina, putting the university on the map in the world of creative writing.
