About Us

NOVUS is a literary journal created and run by undergraduate students attending Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee. NOVUS succeeds Cumberland University’s previous literary journal, Lyre of the Phoenix.

As a journal, NOVUS strives to spark inspiration in those who are hesitant to share their work and encourages both new and established writers to experiment with language. Ultimately, NOVUS’s goal is to develop and maintain a community that cherishes creative expression by supporting original, modern perspectives on the human condition.

Meet Our Advisors!

NOVUS wouldn’t be what it is today without the help and support of Cumberland University’s Creative Writing advisors. Under their direction, we have been able to conduct NOVUS promotional events, establish a bi-weekly creative writing symposium at Cumberland University, and establish a full-fledged literary journal here at novusliterary.com.
