Belles Lettres and Aurora

Belles Lettres, 1936.

The Progress isn’t the only student-written publication on campus. You may have heard of Aurora, EKU’s literary magazine. It started off in 1935 under a different name, Belles Lettres, which is a term meaning “fine art” literature, or prose. The name change from Belles Lettres to Aurora in 1969 didn’t turn a new page for Aurora; they still publish students’ poetry, nonfiction and fiction, even music and photography. Today, Aurora prints exclusively online, and anyone is welcome to contribute.
