Literary Journal


Calaveras Station is the literary journal for Sacramento State, where selected student writings are published in the areas of short fiction, creative nonfiction, critical analysis, and poetry.

Calaveras Station Literary Journal provides publication opportunities for all currently enrolled students writing short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and memoir.

Students work as editors and are involved in soliciting and evaluating submissions for possible publication.

Calaveras Station Literary Journal is published annually, and is presented to the public at a release party at which time published students read their works.
