The Norwich Chameleon – a literary journal

The Chameleon Literary Journal is a student-led publication that highlights Norwich University student submissions from across campus.

We publish art, photography, drama, fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry from students of all majors. The Chameleon was founded in 1961 and has been publishing student work since then. In 2013, we overhauled the layout and design of The Chameleon, so be sure to check out our stunning new look.

AbiThe Chameleon is student run. Our 2014-2015 editor is Abigael Donahue, a three year member of The Chameleon team. Before this year, Abi was first a reader and then a genre editor. She assumes the title of editor in chief from Katherine Proffitt, who led us through a complete redesign of layout of The Chameleon.
