The premier literary journal of the University of Baltimore.

We’ve been thrashing for 55 years in a city that’s as chaotic and creative and charming as the words that have graced our pages for decades—and this may be the most turbulent year yet. In 2020, we created our journal in the midst of a pandemic. We hope the art within serves as both a beautiful distraction and a source of peace. 

Welter publishes creative works of fiction, poetry, memoir, essays, and visual art, gathered from writers and artists everywhere, and is published annually. Submissions for this season have now closed.
