Red Shoes Review

The Red Shoes Review is a literary and arts magazine that publishes the work of undergraduate students and aims to foster the artistic community on UIC campus.

We put together a magazine which premieres second semester every year at a release event with other Honors College publications. Our yearly issue is just a sample of the many talents that walk amid our concrete campus everyday. In addition to the publication, Red Shoes Review organizes events such as an annual Art Show and open mic nights. View the 2016-17 issue here. For more information, email
