The Creative Writing Program sponsors two magazines:

Central Review is a literary journal publishing poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by CMU undergraduate and graduate students. It is edited and produced once per semester by Student Publications under the directive of the Student Media Board of Directors. The magazine also offers annual prizes ($100) for the best poetry, fiction, and non-fiction published each year.

Temenos is a literary magazine published by graduate students in the Creative Writing Program. It features CMU graduate students as well as nationally known poets and writers.
