Bellerive is an annual literary publication from the Pierre Laclede Honors College, produced and published by students of the Honors College each fall.  Students, faculty, and staff campus wide submit previously unpublished creative works each year for possible inclusion in the book; the class then reviews submissions, edits accepted submissions, and lays out and publishes the book.  Selections, editing, layout, and design are all done by students enrolled in the Bellerive seminar.

Launch Celebration

The new issue of Bellerive is launched at a reception in Provincial House on the last Friday in February. The reception is open to students, faculty, and staff campus wide. This celebration also marks the kickoff of submissions collection for the issue that will be produced during the subsequent fall seminar.
