About Us

The Cypress Dome is a student produced literary journal that publishes creative writing and visual art by the University of Central Florida students. We are a university approved student organization dedicated to fostering the literary arts at UCF and promoting a sense of community among writers and artists.

Poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, one-act plays, and visual art may be submitted in the fall term, according to submission guidelines, to be considered for publication in the annual issue published each spring. Founded in 1989, The Cypress Dome received the Associated Writing Programs Directors’ Award for exceptional content in 1995.

With its 2012 issue, The Cypress Dome celebrated 23 years of existence as a collection of finest literary and visual work created by UCF students. Our future goal is to continue publishing high quality submissions while encouraging students from all majors, backgrounds and areas of interest to submit their writing, so that we can create the most diverse, original, captivating collection of student literary work to be found.
