About Us

Volition is GMU’s Undergraduate Art & Literary Magazine. We are dedicated to connecting students through the arts and creating a unique platform for self-expression on campus.

Getting published in Volition adds more than a publication onto your resume; it allows you to be part of the growing literary and arts movement on campus.  Don’t pass up the chance to have your work put on display!

We publish prose, poetry, art, and photography during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Volition also hosts open mic nights throughout the academic year to give writers the opportunity to share their creations and to hear the works of other artists in the GMU community. We serve free food and beverages at these events to feed all our starving artists (and audience members!).

Volition is in association with the Office of Student Media. For more information about Student Media, visit: http://studentmedia.gmu.edu/.

    Hi Volition People,

    I am adjunct faculty teaching Folklore at GMU, but I also work part time at an indie bookstore in Vienna, Va and wanted to see if you would be interested in doing something at our store on March 21st for World Poetry Day? Or anytime in April for Poetry Month?

    We could do a Poetry Write-In… or members could come share their poetry… or members could read favorite poems that inspired them… or…? Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
