About First-Gen Voices

First-Gen Voices is a peer-reviewed journal of creative writing, visual and recorded art, and scholarly work from the first-generation college community. Students and/or faculty and staff who identify as “first-generation college,” as well as those who support the first-generation community, are encouraged to submit original creative and critical work for consideration. New issues are published every fall and spring semester. Personal narratives by participants in the First To Go Writers' Workshop are also featured in special issues throughout the year. Browse the journal.
