Our Vision

1807 is an anthology curated, edited, and produced by members of the UMB community. UMB faculty, staff, students, and alumni as well as University of Maryland Medical Center employees and our West Baltimore neighbors are encouraged to enter. Submission does not guarantee publication. Submissions are free and made online only.

The goal of the publication is to promote the artists in the UMB community, to create more engagement between the UMB and West Baltimore communities, and to serve as a recruitment tool.


Our Mission

1807 strives to encourage members of the UMB community to express themselves creatively through art and the written word. The annual journal showcases the talents of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the broader UMB community and neighbors in visual arts (painting, drawing, illustration, digital art, monotypes, monoprints), photography, varied media (sculpture, clay, metal, glass, textiles, jewelry, wood), and the written word (short story, essay, narrative, poetry). 1807 seeks high-caliber, unpublished works that broadly and creatively relate to the Council for the Arts & Culture’s themes of social justice, health, healing, the mind, and the body.
