national anthology of the best undergraduate writing 2014

The Art 2014

 

Each year, plain china showcases some of the most talented undergraduates in America. While our main focus has always been the written word, the images that accompany the work add tremendously to the aesthetic experience of reading the anthology. With each monthly publication throughout the year, we will add featured images.

Schools listed in the captions below represent those in whose journals the work appeared, which sometimes differ from the artists’ schools. Please see individual biographies on featured pages for further information.

We thank the 58 undergraduate artists from around the country who grace these pages with their fine work.
