The Mercury has served as Gettysburg College's literary magazine since 1899.  Published annually, The Mercury seeks to showcase the best of student work in both the literary and visual arts. 

  • Students serve as editors of submitted material in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, drama, and the visual arts.
  • The Mercury engages new editorial staff each year, offering a valuable experiential opportunity for multiple students.

The publishing office is located at the Writing House. Contact Professor Kathryn Rhett for more information.
