The Northridge Review is a literary & arts journal of the present, produced by students in the creative writing program at California State University, Northridge. Founded in 1962 as a campus publication of student work, The Northridge Review publishes prose, poetry, drama, art, and hybrid texts from across all disciplines that test the boundaries of form, content, and genre by exploring the current literary and cultural climate in thoughtful and challenging ways.

New and exciting things are happening at The Northridge Review!

We are very excited to announce the installation of the brand new Book Arts Lab, where we will be able to design and create each edition of the NR in-house! This is an amazing opportunity to not only gain experience in the field of bookmaking, but a great way to show off our own artistic talents. This new addition to the English Department will be headed by our very talented Book Arts Lab Director, Sean Pessin.

Should you have any questions concerning the Lab, please feel free to reach out!
