About Us

The Nassau Literary Review is the second oldest undergraduate literary magazine in the nation and the oldest student publication at Princeton University.

Since 1842, Nass Lit has been an integral part of the Princeton artistic tradition, providing a forum for student writers, poets, and artists. It was in our pages that many of Princeton’s most celebrated alumni, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Galway Kinnell, and Jonathan Safran Foer, first published their work, and we continue to seek out the best literary and artistic talents on campus today.

Nass Lit seeks to inspire and develop the literary community in Princeton and beyond, both by publishing high-quality prose, poetry, and art, as well as by hosting events and coordinating activities with the other arts groups on campus. This past year’s initiatives have included:

  • Writing workshops Dinners and poetry/prose readings with famous authors
  • Open-Mic Night with the Latino-Heritage Association
  • Coffee House and Print Issue Launch Party at Small World Coffee
  • Writing & Arts Picnic at Grounds for Sculpture, a whimsical and inspiring outdoor sculpture garden
  • Children’s Book Competition in conduction with the Stella Art Club
