Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art is an annual publication that features the very best in poetry, fiction, nonfiction and art. We were founded in 1977 and continue to be one of the few national literary journals entirely edited, designed and produced by students. We solicit manuscripts from writers we love and select the most exciting finds from our virtual submission box. Above all, our commitment is to our readers—to producing a collection that informs, surprises, challenges and inspires.
Over the years, the journal has published National Book Award-winners and Nobel laureates, as well as early writing by then-lesser known talents including Tom Perrotta’s first short story and early poems by Alicia Ostriker and Suji Kwock Kim. Our archives include work by Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, Raymond Carver, Noam Chomsky, Lydia Davis, Louise Glück, Jane Kenyon, Wayne Koestenbaum, Jonathan Lethem, Lorrie Moore, James Tate and more.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
