Literary Journal

Our students publish two literary journals: Fourteen Hills and Transfer.

Due to campus closure the staff of Transfer Magazine is currently unable to distribute our Spring 2020 issue.  We’re proud of all the work we’ve put into it, and we’re eager to share the fine writing and art we collected from SFSU students, so we’ve made issue 119 available as a free download. Please click on the image below to open the PDF, and enjoy!
