Epiphany Nontraditional Student Literary Journal

Epiphany Nontraditional Student Literary Journal was founded in Fall semester of 2009 to give nontraditional students a venue to publish their literary work. This journal gives these students a safe place to submit their fiction, poetry, and essays. Epiphany has incorporated a multicultural and community engaged learning sections and encourage all students on campus to share their culture and experiences. It is our hope as a staff through collaboration with the English Department and other campus journals to prepare students to submit to professional literary journals and achieve their own brand of success.
