Greetings Friends of Student Art and Literature at De Anza!

Available now, Red Wheelbarrow - Student Edition, 2021

Red wheelbarrrow coverThe Red Wheelbarrow Student Edition is an annual student-edited literary magazine published each spring by De Anza student editors showcasing the best fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, art, and literary performance pieces produced by De Anza students during that academic year. Anyone who has taken a De Anza class during the current year is eligible to submit work. Submitted manuscripts are discussed and evaluated without editors knowing names of those submitting; editors are students in the spring quarter EWRT 68A/AX "Literary Magazine" editing course.

The 2021 journal is also attached HERE for download as a 170 page PDF.

Enjoy the PDF for free and get a print version on campus as soon as the campus reopens—from either the Language Arts Division office (for contributor's copies) or the De Anza Bookstore (for anyone who wants one, $12).
