Literary Magazine

  • Illuminations - SCC's Artistic Publication

    See your creative work in print!

    Illuminations isn't your typical literary magazine.

    To start, it’s been repeatedly honored by the Community College Humanities Association as one of the finest college publications in the region. Recognition has included three 1st Place Best Literary Magazine awards and eleven student recognition awards for individual students’ work.

    In addition, Illuminations has reshaped the definition of "literary." We showcase all aspects of creativity from poetry, essays, and short stories to photographs, paintings, pottery, music, and video productions.

    And unlike many other colleges' literary magazines, Illuminations belongs to ALL of us. We publish submissions from all three campuses and our satellite locations, and anyone involved with SCC - students, staff, or faculty - can contribute. Student work is dominant, however, and cash prizes are awarded for top student submissions. We value diversity in opinion, style, and content, which makes our publication particularly interesting to peruse.

    SCC has many outstanding opportunities for expressing your creativity - and Illuminations is one of the finest.

    Illuminations is an annual publication with submissions accepted year-round.

    June: The end of the spring quarter brings the deadline for submissions for the next volume.

    July-August: The Editorial Team reviews all submissions and chooses those bound for publication.  Contributors receive news on the status of their submissions.

    September-January: Submissions are edited, and the graphic designer prepares the copy for publication and forwards it to the printer.

    March: The new volume is published and distributed.
