About Us

BAISMAG is a student magazine published by the students of the BA International Studies at Leiden University. The project was started in October 2013 by a small team of creative writers and has since flourished into a widely-read student publication.

MAGAZINE update: Baismag is organising its next magazine. We are looking forward to receiving your articles and suggestions through our website form (under Contribute), email or Instagram page.

Do current events make you want to vent some opinionated steam? Have you ever wanted to ask that teacher some more critical questions? Got short stories, poetry, or illustrations but they’re left at the back of a drawer? Then BAISMAG is the place for you! We’re the official student magazine of International Studies. We’re always on the lookout for new voices to share, so feel free to submit your work. We accept submissions via email or via our website. BAISmag publishes online articles on a weekly basis and prints student magazines twice a year.
