The Binnacle

The Binnacle is UMM's Literary & Arts Journal. For over fifty years we have published the works of literature and art of our students as well as writers and artists from around the world.

The Binnacle welcomes submissions from the writers of UMM and the rest of the world. We publish two editions per year, a Fall edition and a Spring edition. The Fall edition is our annual Ultra-Short edition; our Spring edition is a general edition. Both editions are published on paper and in e-book format. All production of the journal is completed on the UMM campus by UMM students, staff, and friends.
