CCD Ourglass

About Ourglass

Ourglass, now in its 37th year of publication, is the journal of the English, Graphic Design, and Visual Arts programs at CCD, dedicated to providing a forum for the poetry, prose, drama, design, and artwork of our students.

Submit Your Work

Please consider submitting your work to Ourglass. If you are attending CCD or have attended in the past, you are eligible to submit. Submissions are accepted between September 15th and March 24th of each year. We accept submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama, and artwork, as well as any interesting combinations thereof, exclusively through our email address:

All work submitted must include your name, phone number and current email address. Submit one story or essay at a time; poems can be sent in groups. Send in only low-resolution copies of artwork; we will contact you for high-resolution versions at a later time. Due to the sheer volume of work we must consider, we can only notify you if your work is chosen to be published. If you don’t hear from us, please do try again next year! We love hearing from CCD students and alumni.
