PLNU Driftwood On Sale Now!

PLNU Driftwood 2020 Cover

The 2020 Driftwood has been published and is ready for sale!

Driftwood is a compilation of the arts at Point Loma Nazarene University. Each fall semester, PLNU community members submit their best fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, photography, music, and film for a rigorous review process by the journal's staff and final judging by outside experts in each genre. In the spring, the staff sell copies of the print journal and host an awards party.

This student-run journal is edited, designed, curated, promoted, and sold by students especially for the entire PLNU community: students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators, family members, San Diego neighbors, and—if you're reading this—you! 

PLNU Driftwood Editors 2020

This year's Driftwood editors are seniors Amy Ely and Sophia Markoski. Working in conjunction with the layout editor, Mark Garcia, and the faculty advisor, Dr. Katie Manning, these editors and a team of students from a variety of majors produced a beautiful collection of art!
