This Throwback Thursday is really just for my fellow Mary Washington College grads — what you see below are issues of Aubade, the school’s annual literary magazine, for years 1991 through 1994. (They appear chronologically.) For some reason I thought I remembered that the magazine was published more than once a year, but apparently I was mistaken. (College was a very long time ago.)
I submitted a poem here only once when I was an undergraduate, and it was rejected (probably with good reason). It didn’t bother me for long. I’d like to think that I was a don’t-sweat-the-small-stuff kind of guy even back then.
Aubade was really a terrific lit mag. You can judge for yourself by leafing through these right here over at the Internet Archive. The site’s layout and format makes it quick and easy — and they’ve got issues of the magazine from as early as 1971. Wow.
