Literary Journal


WALL is a community space for creative displays. It is a
fresh canvas, a blank surface begging for decoration, a vast white page awaiting our words and images .....
This mixed media painting presents an abstract interplay of bold colors, originally on a 24-inch by 24-inch canvas.

WALL Literary Journal is a student-produced publication of Saddleback College. Published annually since 2001, the journal is dedicated to providing an open space for creative experimentation. We encourage the unfettered expression of ideas, images, and emotions in literary and artistic works that explore and illuminate the human experience.


Aimed at a multicultural, cross-generational audience, the works represented in the pages of WALL encompass a diversity of voices and visions. This is art in the raw and in the round. We want our readers to laugh and cry, smile and sigh as they immerse themselves in the pleasures and power of art and literature.
