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 printed copy of the journal circulates on campus at the start of the Fall Semester at the following locations: SSC 213 (next to the cafeteria entrance); BGS (near the elevator on the second floor); the Library (3rd floor near reading areas); LRC 344 (Liberal Arts Division); and the Fine Arts Complex (across from the art gallery). Click on “WALL 2013” below to see a digital version. For further information, contact the Liberal Arts Division Office in LRC 344.


This website offers information on submitting work and digital versions of past editions of WALL.
