the crucible

The Crucible has been UNC’s student literary and arts magazine since the 1960s. The United Student Literary Voices (USLV) selects student work to publish in a bi-annual magazine featuring poetry, prose, creative non-fiction, photography, and traditional and digital art. The club is made up of students of a variety of majors and backgrounds; anyone is encouraged to get involved.

In the fall, The Crucible publishes a special themed edition and in the spring, the main edition is published featuring a wide variety of artwork and writing themes and interests. On average, The Crucible receives approximately 100 submissions of student writing and artwork per publication.

Latest Issue

The latest issue is available free of charge at the English office in Ross Hall. In addition, we now have e-book issues available on The Crucible's website.

Submit Your Work

All UNC students, as well as undergraduates from any two or four year institution, are invited to submit their work. Please visit the Crucible's wesbite for submission information. 


Meetings are held on Mondays at 5 p.m. in Ross 1155. During the meetings the club discusses upcoming events and publications; new members are always welcome.
