Simbaa is the literary magazine of Lincoln University. Simbaa’s goal is to promote and preserve Lincoln's rich literary legacy. Simbaa features poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, drama, screenplays, art, and photography.
Simbaa is published annually in the spring. It features student-generated work and occasionally a faculty submission. Students from all majors may submit items for consideration.
Each year Simbaa hosts a competition to identify the poet laureate and to generate the best writing Lincoln University students have to offer. The prose competition is funded by published author and former University trustee Guy Sims ’83. The poetry competition is funded by Susan Tatum, widow of alumni Bill Tatum, former editor and publisher of the Amsterdam News.
Simbaa was founded in 2006 by Assistant Professor David Amadio the late Professor William Adams.
Students who are interested in acting as the magazine's editorial board — steering both its print and digital incarnations —should email Prof. David Amadio about taking a possible spring 2019 course “Print and Digital Publishing.”
