Students in the Ivory Tower

We’re accustomed to getting oodles of literary journals around the Utne office each month, so many that we’re quickly overwhelmed. But once each year we’re treated to the latest copy of The Ivory Tower, a publication edited and produced by a class of about 15 students at the University of Minnesota. Each issue is wildly different from the last; the layout, content, and mission is a reflection of the particular students that year. The 2011 class chose an elegantly minimal design and loaded it with clever fiction, fierce poetry, and vibrant personal essays. Most folks won’t be able to get their hands on a hard copy (unless you drop by the U of M campus), so the students posted a complete digital version online.
