The Laureate’s mission is to provide undergraduate students at Western Michigan University a place in which to publish their fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and other creative works. Under the guidance of a faculty editor and mentor, each year an undergraduate student chooses to accept the challenge of gathering, selecting, and editing the collection for an honors thesis project. Faculty mentors at WMU’s Design Center at the Gwen Frostic School of Art select undergraduate students to be in charge of the journal’s design aesthetic. The Laureate strives to be a professional and engaging publication that appeals to all. Please enjoy the creative work of our students!
