First published in 1962, and for the last 52 years of its publication,The Citadel has prided itself in highlighting students’ literary work in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The Citadel is an active journal featuring the creative works of LACC students, as well as the LACC community at-large, inviting the neighboring communities of Los Feliz, Hollywood, Koreatown, and Silverlake and beyond to publish their works, in the hopes of fostering a community in the literary arts.

Submissions are open to the public with a $10.00 fee, but currently enrolled LACC students may submit for free.

This Year's Theme: Negotiating Identities- Voices of Politics, Race, Gender, and Religion

As we enter a new decade, we are seeking submissions that reflect the hybridity of what it means to be who we are, especially as we consider the outcome of this year’s general election. Whether your prose or poetry touches on politics, race, gender, or religion, or a combination of all, your stories will reflect the ever-changing make-up of the world we live in, particularly in Los Angeles. The Citadel is the place to share your voices.

NEW EXTENDED Deadline: Friday, June 19, 2020
