Border Crossing is a literary and arts journal published by the Lake Superior State University Creative Writing Program. Uniquely situated on the border of America and Canada, we're committed to publishing the best work submitted by emerging and established writers on both sides of the border, as well as to supporting literacy and the literary arts in the sister cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Ontario.
We're especially interested in writing that crosses boundaries in genre or geography, and voices that aren't often heard in mainstream publications. The best way to see what we mean by this is to order a copy of our latest issue. All of our submissions go through a rigorous editorial board process. We consider ourselves a “teaching journal,” in that one of our main goals is to give LSSU English and creative writing students editing opportunities prior to graduation. Visual art is only considered from residents of Michigan's Upper Peninsula or Ontario in order to provide an outlet where area artists may publish their work.
