The Best Fiction and Poetry from California State University, Northridge: 1962-1988

All the following stories and poems were written by students at San Fernando Valley State College and California State University, Northridge, and all were published in various literary magazines edited and produced by students on this campus. The works appearing in this special collection, drawn from thirty-six separate publications, were selected for their excellence by an editorial board of creative writing teachers in the CSUN English Department. This anthology, covering the period from 1962 to 1988, presents a literary portrait of people who live, study, and work in Southern California, an unfolding emotional panorama of their attitudes and concerns. Though the works appear in chronological order, they have been arranged to suggest certain dramatic sequences or clusters of ideas and images about our experiences during the past twenty-six years with family, friends, and lovers in the San Fernando Valley and its environs.
