The Literary Society
What We Are
From the publication itself:
In 1987, the Literary Society formed to create the University of Oregon's premiere literature and arts journal, Timberline. In 1995, the society expanded to include multiple campus forums of creative exploration and expression. Every activity is entirely accessible to the University's student body, faculty and staff.
The central intent of the Literary Society is to create multiple opportunities for an alternative and representative venue where university students can slip out from under the pressures of liberal and fine arts rhetoric to explore and demonstrate personal and alternative voices and visions.
Timberline is published with funds provided by the Associated Students of the University of Oregon. It is an annual publication of the UO Literary Society and features the work of UO students, faculty, and staff.
