Camas: A Journal of Art & Literature

Camas: A Journal of Art & Literature

Since 1980, the creative writing program at Linfield University and the Associated Students of Linfield University (ASLU) have supported the publication of a student-run literary magazine. First known as Test-Marketed Downpour, the name was changed to Camas: A Journal of Art & Literature in 2001. Open only to current Linfield students for many years, Camas now accepts submissions from the wider campus community – including alumni, faculty, staff and administration – residents of Yamhill County and members of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde.
