Harbinger Magazine

Covers of past Harbinger magazines

Harbinger, Texas Tech's undergraduate literary journal, publishes photography, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short plays, and art. Staffed by Texas Tech students, the magazine is dedicated to giving our students--authors and artists--the opportunity to publish their work for the first time and become familiar with the publishing process. We accept student submissions during the fall semester, and we release the journal in the spring semester, giving students across campus a chance to show off their creativity and talent as the academic year wraps up.
