Welcome to The Indicator, Amherst College’s student-run literary and arts magazine! Originally founded in 1848, with the mission “to indicate the literary taste, spirit, and acquirements of the undergraduates of Amherst College,” The Indicator was resurrected in 1996 after a 145-year hiatus. While its form and style have shifted over the decades, The Indicator currently publishes one themed edition per semester and accepts a range of creative works including art, short stories, poetry, and more.
For this reason, we encourage interested students to join early in the semester. However, if you would like to be involved later in the year, feel free to reach out to us! We are happy to work with you to see how our club can best fit your needs. Unlike most literary magazines, The Indicator does not operate on an external submissions-based model, instead emphasizing a close working relationship between club members in their roles as writers, editors, and artists. For this reason, we encourage interested students to join early in the semester. Please send any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
