Letter from the Co-Editors

Introducing the 2023 Northern Lights

Welcome to the fifth issue of the newly reintroduced Northern Lights Literary & Arts Journal! The staff of UW-Green Bay’s Practicum in Literary Publishing course is thrilled to present the incredibly creative works of our fellow students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Since 2019 when the journal was brought back to life, it’s garnered amazing attention from our UWGB community. This year saw a record-number of submissions! Our team had a difficult time deciding on which pieces to include, even after completely filling up our extended online content area. And while finding ourselves especially short on time, we also managed to put together Marinette campus’ bi-weekly e-newsletter The Driftwood, including the first ever April Fool’s Day issue. Our editorial staff collaborated both in-person on the Marinette campus and via Zoom to UWGB’s three other locations. It took a lot of hard work and dedication, but our team persevered and made it happen together.

On behalf of our advisor and our editorial staff, we say a very warm thank you to the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay’s Student Senate for funding this incredible showcase of UWGB talent.

Exclusive Digital Content!

We weren’t able to fit all of the best submissions this year into our print pages, so we created an online space for them. Visit the "Digital Exclusive Content" section for additional poems, short stories, photos, short stories, and digital stories from UW-Green Bay students and faculty/staff.
