Our creative writing students are actively involved in the practices of editing and publishing, as well as producing original content for a range of publications.

Red Cedar Review

MSU undergraduates manage Red Cedar Review, one of the longest running undergraduate-managed literary journals in the nation.  We publish exclusively the work of undergraduate writers and artists across the nation.  If you are an MSU student interested in working with the journal for an internship or extracurricular activity, please email the editors at redcedarreview@gmail.com.
