Welcome to the Forum For Undergraduate Student Editors
FUSE was established to address the insular nature of most undergraduate literary magazines, the difficulty they face in creating a true community, and the need for an organization that will prepare undergraduates to enter the editing and publishing profession. By creating a vigorous undergraduate magazine culture – a true community of shared learning in the art of magazine editing, design, and production – we hope to bridge the gap between the academic arena of editorial training and the profession at large, and to address the many career and educational concerns of creative writing students.
