Publishing Workshop Class

Students interested in magazine production are invited to consider LITR/ENLS 202, PUBLISHING WORKSHOP, the course that produces Ramapo’s undergraduate literary magazine Trillium. While Spring 2021 promises to pose new challenges, I have no doubt that we will be able to produce an excellent book that showcases the best prose, poetry, art, and photography created by our student body.

Students in this course learn about the literary magazine: its history, various incarnations in the 21st Century, and the culture and practices associated with editing these publications. The student staff will solicit and judge hundreds of manuscripts and works of art, choose award winners, and ultimately design and publish a print magazine.

Print copies of the current edition remains in storage while state is in Opening Phase 2, but I will see that they are distributed widely once we begin to return to campus in earnest. In the meantime, electronic copies of what past staff have created are available below.

This course requires instructor permission to enroll. If you’d like to take this class or have questions about what the semester involves, feel free to contact Hugh Sheehy at

Trillium is Ramapo College’s Literary Magazine. Since the early 1970’s, Trillium has featured the poetry, fiction, photography, and other visual arts of Ramapo College Students. Trillium is edited by students in LITR 202 Magazine Workshop, offered by the English and Literary Studies Major, but the content is created by students from across the college. The magazine is published every spring and is available free of charge all year round.

TRILLIUM, Ramapo’s literary magazine, has been written, designed, and published by Ramapo’s students for over 40 years. More information.
