Wall Literary Journal is an annually published literary magazine founded in 2000 featuring selected works from Saddleback College students.[1] It publishes short stories, poetry, essays, photography, and artwork. A printed copy of the journal circulates on campus at the start of Saddleback's Fall Semester. Unlike many other college and university literary journals, WALL only accepts submissions from students currently enrolled at Saddleback College. Staff members consist of Saddleback College students and are responsible for publicity, reviewing and selecting student submissions, layout and design, proofing, and copy editing.
