Nova Literary-Arts Magazine is a student produced publication that features a curated selection of artwork, audio, poetry, short stories and films.
In 1970, UNC Charlotte launched the literary-arts magazine Sanskrit. Since its debut, Sanskrit became an award-winning magazine that is nationally recognized. In 2021 the students of Sanskrit formed a committee to explore rebranding the magazine and thus Sanskrit became Nova. You can read more about the change and rebranding to Nova here.
Our student staff works hard to ensure that the very best poetry, short stories, and art is featured in the magazine. Our designers spend hours perfecting the layout and the design.
At Nova, we not only want the magazine to be something you will reread for years, but we also want it to become a piece of art you can display in your home. Sanskrit is published annually in the spring. We receive submissions from all over the world. Please submit your work for a chance to be featured in our magazine.
