About The Confluence
The Confluence began at Lindenwood College in 1969 as a creative writing journal featuring the work of Lindenwood students.
In 2009, under the leadership of Dr. Jeff Smith, the Confluence shifted focus to American history, particularly Missouri history. It featured the work of some of the leading historians in the field.
Since early 2021, the Confluence has returned to its roots with a focus on undergraduate and graduate student work and expanded that original vision by including research and creative works of all kinds produced by Lindenwood students. Our focus is to highlight the achievements and contributions Lindenwood students make to their fields.
