Winged Nation is a College of William and Mary student magazine first published in 1993. There was no volume published in 2004. Electronic versions of Winged Nation are available in the W&M Digital Archive and in Swem Library.
Since the late 1960s, students have frequently produced newspapers and other publications, including literary and creative journals, without official college sanction. The earliest one in the University Archives is The Owl, consisting of one issue published in 1854 by students at the college. The satirical and humorous Fat Head, distributed by The Flat Hat writers, has been in existence since at least 1939. The Special Collections Research Center also keeps copies of current alternative newspapers and publications.
Information gathered by students in LCST 201 "Constructing the News" about some College publications including Winged Nation is available at the course Wiki.
