2023 Spring Saxifrage full cover

The 2023 issue of Saxifrage (#49) is now available on campus!

For a taste of the excellent writing you’ll find in this year’s number,

enjoy Mateo Acuña’s memoir piece, “The Names in Me.”


Saxifrage is Pacific Lutheran University’s premier literary and art magazine. It consists of work by students, staff, and alumni – poems, traditional art, literary essays, prints, short stories, photography, musical scores, and other works, all selected by volunteer judges from the Pacific Lutheran community.

A book by the people, for the people. A celebration and review of excellence. A piece of Pacific Lutheran you can take with you. Submissions to Saxifrage are accepted in the fall semester on a rolling basis, with a final deadline in early spring. Anyone involved in the university’s community can, and is encouraged to submit. We look forward to seeing what you’ve done.
