The Bottom Shelf Review is Wilson College’s student literary magazine. Founded in 1979, the BSR celebrates the best in creative work by the Wilson community every year. Edited by the students of Wilson College, the BSR annually publishes poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, and artwork by Wilson students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The BSR publishes select pieces in The Billboard newspaper, and, starting in 2003, will be publishing an electronic version of the magazine on the Wilson College Department of English and Mass Communications website.

Members of the BSR also give yearly readings to the Chambersburg Area Council for the Arts and help co-ordinate the annual Writers Series.
