About Us

The premier literary journal of the University of Baltimore.

We’ve been thrashing for 57 years in a city that’s as chaotic, creative, and charming as the words that have graced our pages for decades. We hope the messages and art within Welter serve not only as a beautiful distraction and source of peace during turbulent times but also as a source of inspiration and empowerment.

Welter publishes high-quality fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and visual art from writers and artists around the world. The print journal publishes annually (each spring).

Welter Online publishes online regularly. Visit the W Online page for updates, calls for submission, and to read fresh fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Submit now: https://welter2017.submittable.com/
