About This Journal
Toyon is the Humboldt State University English department’s annual journal of literature and art. Run entirely by students since its inception in 1954, Toyon showcases the work of established and emerging writers and artists from Humboldt County and all over the world.
Each year, more than three hundred submissions of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, literary criticism, and artwork are reviewed by students enrolled in the course associated with its publication. All submissions are considered for the awards associated with Toyon.
Supported by Humboldt State University's College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and English Department, as well as the generosity of community members, Toyon is distributed throughout Humboldt County each spring.
