Tower Light

Hillsdale College


The Mission of The Tower Light is to encourage students to consider their common study of the Western Tradition through artistic struggle. This results in a collection of art that unites distinct visions of the true, the good, and the beautiful according to a shared, liberal arts education.


The Tower Light, a student-run publication, comes out with issues once a semester that showcase the poems, short stories, and visual art of students and alumni. Every semester, The Tower Light‘s Editor-in-Chief selects a board of editors through anonymous applications to collaboratively discuss and choose submissions to feature. Since the college usually offers around one creative writing course a year, the publication provides further opportunities for students to write, refine, and publish their creative works.
