Poor Yorick: A Journal of Rediscovered Objects

About the Journal

Poor Yorick: A Journal of Rediscovered Objects is an online literary publication of the MFA Program at Western Connecticut State University. The journal publishes poems, stories, essays, profiles, digital video shorts, photo essays, scholarly articles, and other innovative works about or inspired by rediscovered objects and/or images of material culture. In addition to unsolicited submissions, the journal's editorial staff will occasionally identify a particular historical object, collection, exhibit, etc., and call for submissions inspired by the selected artifact. Poor Yorick also works in conjunction with museums both locally and nationally to identify and encourage innovative works focusing on lesser-known and overlooked objects and images.

Student Involvement

The editorial board of the journal consists entirely of current students. Other students in the program contribute to the journal in a variety of ways including serving as readers, copy editors, and fact checkers. Some may write nonfiction pieces for the journal, assist with marketing, research grant writing, and help members of the staff work with the journal's museum partners to find creative works inspired by lost and forgotten objects and pieces of material culture.
