The Labyrinth is an annual publication of the US Naval Academy's English Department. It is composed of the creative genius of the Academy's Midshipmen. The design, editing, and publication of the magazine are the direct result of the efforts of many Midshipmen with guidance from the USNA English Department's Faculty and Officers.
For 36 years the Labyrinth has featured poetry, short stories, original artwork, photography, and essays from the Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy. Dr Allan Lefcowitz, a former professor in the Academy’s English Department, was pivotal in getting this annual publication off the ground. In 1976 his creative writing class recognized the interest and need for publishing a literary magazine here at the Academy. Thus, the majority of the entries in the first issue came from that class, led by two of his students, Andrew Hegeman and Colin Sargent.
