Purpose/Description *

Briefly describe the purpose of your organization.

Rainy Day is the longest running literary magazine on the Cornell University campus, publishing a biannual magazine presenting the finest student literary works to the widest audience possible. We are a cooperative group of editors who critique work through interactive meetings. Our staff members come from a myriad of backgrounds: Economics, Biology, Philosophy, English and other majors. We have been publishing for 47 years at Cornell and were founded by Professor Kenneth A. McClane who is a professor at Cornell currently and who said in our 30th anniversary issue, “Rainy Day might well be the longest-lived student publication in the country.” Rainy Day is a prestigious magazine with a long tradition: in our first year, we published a poem by Richard Price, a now-famous novelist and screenwriter (author of “Clockers”) and published poems by now famed writers Anselm Hollo, James Bertolino, and Thomas Johnson.
