Louden Singletree literary magazine

Created in 2008, the Louden Singletree is a student-based initiative, run each year by a small student editorial board with the support and guidance of the English department. It is a non-profit journal, funded by the UFV Student Educational Enhancement Fund.

The Louden Singletree’s mission is to assemble the best literature and visual art from UFV, which includes submissions from students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The editorial board aspires to represent the voice of this diverse creative community. Each year the student team strives to extend the magazine’s reach into the local communities to produce a fuller, more dynamic publication.

The Louden Singletree has been a tool to continue the literary dialogue at UFV and at large. The magazine accepts works with unique insight, actively seeking original perspectives and evocative language. Poetry, short stories, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, plays, excerpts from novels and novellas, as well as visual art are accepted by the magazine, which embraces a wide variety of genres and styles while maintaining a high standard of excellence.

Copies of the most recent issue of the Louden Singletree can be obtained in the library on the Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses, at no cost. Or, check out the latest edition online.

Lacey Hall UFV Alumni English

After graduating from UFV, I was hired as assistant to the Dean of Arts at Kwantlen Polytechnic University; I believe that the experience of taking an Honours major was a great asset to me in my interview as I was able to demonstrate exceptional work ethic, the ability to work closely on projects, and collaborate with others
