Hello, Readers!

Welcome to Paper Shell, the anthology of UBC Okanagan student writing, which is edited by UBCO students too.

Each issue of Paper Shell features work in a variety of genres–from poetry to screenplay, fiction to nonfiction–written by students from first year to masters.

In 2021, due to the pandemic, we all went digital, Paper Shell included. This page is our archive.
