About Us
The Thing Itself is a print and online literary journal powered by the students of Our Lady of the Lake University. Until recently, the journal exclusively published student work, but has now opened its doors to outside submissions.
Mission Statement
The mission of the journal is to publish the exceptional work of those who love language, regardless of tenure, experience, or genre. We empower a community of literacy and creativity both within our university walls and in the world outside.
