You may have seen copies of a book with a golden flower and the number 40 engraved on its kaleidoscopic cover.

You may have opened this book and found it full of student poetry, prose, photography, paintings and musical compositions. You may have been intrigued and asked yourself, “what is this beautiful artifact I find in my hands?”

Or you may not have even seen this book, and are wondering exactly what this strange thing is.

The answer to both of these questions is this: that book is the latest edition of Saxifrage, PLU’s premier literary and art magazine.

Founded in 1975, Saxifrage has published 40 collections of poetry, prose, art, photography and music. Saxifrage is written by and for PLU students, faculty, and alumni—a book by the people, for the people.

Saxifrage is also committed to fostering a community of artists on campus, hosting events throughout the year to offer a venue for creatives to showcase their work. Be on the lookout for open mics, art gallery events and author readings—they’re coming your way. Saxifrage is also proud to have a column in the Mast that showcases outstanding work from its past issues as well as entirely new creative work.

Saxifrage accepts year-round submissions for publication in the magazine and its weekly column right here in The Mooring Mast. Send all submissions, questions, rants, raves, ponderings, wanderings and general thoughts to saxifrag@plu.edu. You can also find Saxifrage online at Facebook, Twitter and on the PLU website here.
