WALL Literary Journal












WALL is a literary journal produced annually by students of Saddleback College enrolled in English 160. Students in the 3-unit course assume staff positions involved with reviewing and selecting submissions, layout, design, copy editing, and publicity.

Published since 2001, WALL features poetry, short stories, personal narratives, photographs, and artwork that have been selected among submissions from Saddleback College students. The 2012 - 2015 editions of WALL have been awarded first place among campus literary magazines in a national competition sponsored by the American Scholastic Press Association.

A printed copy of the journal circulates on campus at the start of the Fall Semester at the following locations: the Library (3rd floor near Circulation Desk); LRC 344 (Liberal Arts Division office); BGS (near the elevators on the second floor); and the Fine Arts Complex (near the entrance to the McKinney Theater). To view both the current edition and past editions of WALL, please refer to the list of editions given at the end of this page.
