Link to Kirkwood Community College

The clever, beautiful and original talent that exists in our academic community is showcased annually in Kirkwood’s only student-run literary magazine, The Cedar Valley Divide.

By writing for and editing this magazine, you’ll gain practical experience in reading and editing literary manuscripts, as well as in-depth information about publishing and printing processes.

The Cedar Valley Divide accepts short fiction, poetry, essays, photographs or other forms of artwork.

Not only will family and friends be proud if your work is selected, your resume will benefit from publication credit as well. Submissions are accepted year-round, usually with a deadline of late September for print materials and a little later for artwork.

Visit the Cedar Valley Divide Web site  for submission guidelines or contact for more information about joining the CVD staff.
