Publishing Opportunity: Cellar Roots , EMU’s Award Winning Student-Run Literary and Arts Magazine

Cellar Roots is a student run magazine that publishes poetry, prose, visual art, film, and music created by undergraduate students at Eastern Michigan University. Our goal is to give a voice to these students by providing an easily accessible opportunity to express and showcase their creativity. We hope to bring together the talented minds of EMU through the spirit of diversity, integrity, dedication, and inclusion, and give them a collective voice. These soulful, passionate students not only take leaps in their career when they are published with us, but they grow and celebrate together as a community of creative minds.
