WALL is a literary journal created and produced annually by students of Saddleback College.

Published since 2000, WALL features poetry, short stories, personal essays, photographs, and artwork that have been selected from submissions from Saddleback College students. The 2012 and 2013 editions of WALL have been awarded First Place among campus literary magazines in a national competition sponsored by the American Scholastic Press Association.

A public reading of works from the 2014 edition of WALL Literary Journal will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, October 16, in Health Sciences 145. Everyone is welcome to attend
