Envelope: Art & Writing Magazine

What is the Envelope?

Envelope is an Art & Writing Magazine featuring creative work from UCLA's International Student, Scholar, and Staff community. When you open Envelope, you find poems, creative fiction, opinion pieces, digital art, drawings, paintings, and photography. The hope for this magazine is that it provides a platform for international students, scholars, and staff, both at UCLA and UCLA Extension to share their unique perspectives with the extended campus community and beyond.

How to Submit an Entry

Submissions for the 2021 magazine are closed. Check out this volume below!
