Looking at some extra time for reading this summer, but not sure what you want to read? GMU Volition staff have come up with some recommendations for you!

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

The first son of the US, Alex, starts a fake social media friendship with the prince of Wales, Henry. While it’s all for show, they start falling for each other and have a secret romance. Could this derail Alex’s mom’s presidential campaign for re-election?

The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston

An account of how infectious diseases, smallpox in particular, have the potential to destroy human civilization. Especially potent in the time of the coronavirus.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

What do you get when you mix The Hunchback of Notre Dame with Russian folklore? You get a rich story with intriguing characters, settings, and a plot that will leave you craving more.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

This classic coming-of-age autobiography shows how inner strength and literature can help overcome racism and trauma.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

A book of poetic essays sure to leave the reader thinking. The poems span all kinds of topics, from love to elating and drinking, prayer to housing, laws to clothing. Over nine million copies of this book have been sold in America.

Our Story

Volition, formerly known as Apathy, is George Mason University's Undergraduate Creative Literature and Art Magazine. Voltion lives a life on the edge between boldness and creativity that cannot be found elsewhere on campus.

We publish poetry, prose, art, and photographs during the fall and spring semester and are always looking for talented artists to join our staff! If you're interested in working with us, please visit volition.gmu.edu

Getting published in Volition adds more than a publication onto your writers resume; it allows you to be a part of the growing literary movement on campus. You never know who reads literary magazines, don't allow the chance to put your work on display pass you by, it may become famous. Many of the artists and writers featured in Volition have gone on to continue to pursue careers in their fields.

Volition hosts open-mic nights two-three times per semester to allow writers and other performers to show their work and hear the work of other writers and performers in the GMU community. Not to mention free pizza and soda for all our starving artists.
