The Eckleburg Project

A TAMU Literary Journal

The Eckleburg Project is the official undergraduate literary journal of Texas A&M University. We are an undergraduate organization featuring student poetry, prose, and art. Now with thirteen issues under our belt, we started with the idea that art should be free and easily accessible to the community.

Our staff is composed of undergraduate students and editors who select pieces to be published semesterly under a process of blind review. For information on how to join, go to our apply page. For information on how to submit, go to our submissions page. For general inquiries, or just to say hello, contact our organizational email at theeckleburgproject@gmail.com.

As always, we thank you for your support as we continue to foster art here at Texas A&M.

Bailey Grams is a senior English major from San Antonio, Texas with minors in Communication and Film Studies. Bailey joined The Eckleburg Project as a Screener in the Fall of 2018. In her free time, she loves to read, write, draw, and binge watch TV shows. If you find her on campus, she’s most likely listening to podcasts like My Brother, My Brother, and Me or The Adventure Zone and wishing she didn’t have to go to class. If she’s not doing any of THAT, she’s thinking about how much she misses her dogs (and about her exceptional distaste for corn).

Sabra is a University Studies major with Arabic and Psychology minors. She started as a screener for the Eckleburg Project in the fall of 2018. She is morbidly obsessed with true crime and comic books and, if she could do anything when she grew up, she would want to be a superhero. Barring that, she is aiming for law enforcement. After school, she wants to continue on to Grad school and maybe finish that book she’s been writing since she was 16.
