Encounters Magazine is Baruch College's long running arts and literary publication. Every semester for the past 22 years, Encounters has been a creative outlet for Baruch students publishing their diverse array of artistic endeavors. Even though our campus is known for its business savvy, our readers are always taken by surprise when they see just how talented the students of Baruch College can be when it comes to the arts. We accept ALL forms of creativity: short fiction, poetry, prose, photography, sketches, paintings, sculptures, screenplays, lyrics, scripts, nonfiction, essays- if it's creative, we want it in our magazine! We are always looking for new contributors, so whether you've been writing, drawing, or taking photos for years, only started yesterday- don't hesitate to send it over! We are YOUR advocates and want to give you the chance to express yourself in print! Feel free to email us: [email protected] or stop by our office (VC 3-291) for any questions, and to pick up a copy of our most recent magazine.

Mission: We publish the literary and artistic work of Baruch students for all to see and celebrate.

At Encounters we hope you’ve all been staying safe, motivated, & productive throughout these times! As we know, many things have changed due to distance learning, and that includes the production of our zine. We were planning to release a zine during this year’s women’s history month to provide a platform for women-led or women-started businesses. Although we won’t be physically printing nor distributing the zine we have decided to release the articles on our website starting tonight! We hope this week of articles gives you all something more to do/read during this time and helps uplift your spirits. We also hope that you fall in love with these businesses as much as we did & we hope this captivates you all to support them after the lockdown. We send you all our best wishes: stay healthy, active, and productive. And dont forget to check out the first article which will be up tonight 🙌🏼
