About Scribble

Published two to three times per year as we have enough material to fill an issue, Scribble features poetry, short fiction, and creative non-fiction from both established and emerging writers from around the globe.


Scribble had its beginnings in 1997 as a homework assignment for a graduate school class — Literary Publications — at the University of Baltimore. After begging friends for submissions and spending weeks creating the first issue, the prospect of printing only two copies — one for the professor and one to keep — was unthinkable. One hundred copies emerged from a Kinko’s copier, and a magazine was launched.


In the years that have followed, our audience has grown and we have moved from photocopied copies to a finely printed format. We have published authors from as far away as India and as nearby as a few streets away.


Founding editor Sherry Audette Morrow has been writing thinly-veiled exposés of her friends and family members (while assuring them, “It’s only fiction!”) for as long as she can remember. She holds degrees in English and Publication Design from Temple University and the University of Baltimore. When not working on Scribble, she writes fiction, poetry, and articles, and like most other fiction writers, she can be found working on a novel or two.
