Rushlight

Campuswide Undergraduate Journal

“Rushlight, the Wheaton College (Norton, Massachusetts) literary and visual arts journal, was founded in 1855 by Lucy Larcom (1824-1893), an important 19th-century writer and educator…When Larcom named The Rushlight, she proposed as a brief motto this couplet: “A Rushlight flickering and small, / Is better than no light at all.” For the first few years of its existence, Rushlight served as both a newspaper and literary magazine.”-from Rushlight website
