About Chinquapin

Chinquapin Literary Magazine began in 1978 and has been creating yearly anthologies of student art and writing ever since.

For the past 42 years, we have been run entirely by undergraduate students of the University of California Santa Cruz. Chinquapin is a space for students to learn about the ins and outs of publishing; both as submitters and editors. Our mission is to provide a high quality, inclusive platform for undergraduate art.
