Vagabond, UCSB's Undergraduate Multilingual Literary Journal

Vagabond was founded in 2013 to provide a space where undergraduates can publish creative writing in languages other than English.  The journal's mission is to illustrate and bring attention to the linguistic and cultural diversity on campus and to foster a sense of community among students from different backgrounds. 


Submissions of poetry and fiction in any language but English are invited, maximum 1000 words, accompanied by an English translation.  Submissions of visual art, in any medium, are also welcome.  Undergraduates interested in volunteering as illustrators are encouraged to contact the journal.




Submissions deadline: March 1, 2021
