What Are We?

Loch Norse is an annual print magazine that features work from undergraduate students at Northern Kentucky University.  


We want this online space to do what the physical pages of our print magazine cannot do, such as present moving poems, poetry video, digital work, hypertext, visual work that needs to be in color (since we print in black and white), and anything that may need to be seen “off the page.”  


Anyone affiliated with NKU is welcome to submit to this online space, including alums, graduate students, current undergraduates, staff, or faculty. 

Meet Poe!

Poe is a consultant to the English Department, as well as an unofficial groundskeeper at Northern Kentucky University.

A flair for the dramatic, he enjoys brooding within his poetry and getting down to “Who the Hell is Edgar?” by Salena and Teya.

As the muse of Loch Norse, he spends much of his time napping underneath the bridge in the lake, our magazine’s namesake; often venturing into Steely Library or Haile Planetarium during open mic nights to sit in the back while poets and students read their work aloud.

How long has he been around? One cannot say. But be mindful to guard your pencils. It is rumored that he is fond of snacking on them.
