Nimbus (Literary Publication)


Nimbus is Wagner College’s literary magazine. It is published twice a year, at the end of the fall and spring semesters. This student-run publication solicits literary and artistic works from students, professors, and faculty. Submitted works are considered by the Nimbus staff for inclusion in the magazine (due to the volume of submissions received, not all works can be included). Each issue of Nimbus is professionally printed and freely distributed to the Wagner community.

Nimbus accepts poetry, short stories, drawings, photography, personal reflections, short plays, paintings, and other creative works.  Submissions and questions may be sent to

Archived editions of Nimbus are accessible here (in progress).

The Nimbus office is located on the second floor of the Kairos House. Meetings are held on Wednesday nights at 9:15.

Anyone wishing to join Nimbus may contact any member of the editorial staff. In addition to the editors, Nimbus has a general staff who works on social media, copyediting, judging, design assistance, advertising, and more.
