A TAMU Literary Journal
The Eckleburg Project is the official undergraduate literary magazine of Texas A&M University. We are a student run magazine featuring student poetry, prose, and art. Just over four years old, with now eight issues under our belt, we started with the idea in mind that art should be free to the community and easily accessible.
Without community, art would not exist, and artwork is a direct reflection of that community. Thus, became our name, inspired by Doctor T.J. Eckleburg from The Great Gatsby. Dr. Eckleburg acts as a symbol of the all seeing eye over the city, not missing a single event or happening. To truly be a great artist, one must act as an acute observer to the environment. In order to grow in your art, you must surround yourself with art. Herein, The Eckleburg Project was born.
