Inscape: Art, Culture, & Literature at Pasadena City College
Our universe, according to Gerard Manley Hopkins, is made up of "inscape." Inscape is the unique inner nature of every thing and every person: the eclectic, the human, the becoming, and the unexpected -- a compost of imagination. Pasadena City College's Inscape literary journal showcases work that embodies the inscape of authors, poets, and artists.
Inscape is Pasadena City College's, student-run, literary journal. Inscape publishes a main print issue at least once per year. "Specialty" publications (folios, chapbooks, online issues, etc.) appear online and in print throughout the year.
PCC students create the literary journal in the English 007 class, Inscape Magazine Publication. Students market, design, and print the journal.
Submissions for the PRINT issue are exclusively open to people directly associated with PCC, such as students, faculty, and alumni. Anyone, including non-PCC affiliated persons, can submit to the ONLINE issues.
Inscape's aesthetic fluctuates and molds to the taste of the current semester staff, marking Inscape as a relavent and unique projection of Pasadena City College's community, and of creators from around the world.
If you are an alumni of PCC Creative Writing courses, we want YOU! We are in the process of setting up an Alumni page on the PCC Inscape site and we are also looking for Alumni interested in serving on the PCC Inscape Future Board of Directors! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
Our staff of PCC students and community members rotates each semester and each year. Occasionally, particular staff members continue to serve Inscape, even after the semester closes. This gives Inscape a unique opportunity to consistently reinvent itself and make each new issue original and interesting for both new and familiar readers!
