Inscape Magazine is a student-run publication at Pasadena City College in print since 1942! We published one of the first stories by award-winning alumna Octavia Butler in our very pages! Our archive is housed at the Pasadena City College Library.

While we receive a small grant each year from PCC Student Services, the Covid-crisis has left our funding up in the air. We appreciate any donations for the publication of our print magazine and Editor's prizes. The magazine is attached to the ENGL 7 course, which teaches students how to work on a professional literature magazine, how to take on editorial roles, how to interview professional artists and writers and how to compose culture-content for our Feral Parrot blog. Students also choose awardees for the Handley Award Scholarship for Pasadena City College students as well as other editorial prizes. 

We publish at least 1 print issue per year and online content at pccinscape.com

We are a community publication and we primarily publish work by PCC Community Members and occasionally artists and writers from elsewhere.

Our Creative Writing program at Pasadena City College is a member of the AWP Associated Writing Programs Affiliate Members and the Community of Literary Magazines and Small Presses.
