Submissions are now closed
Journal Launches August 14th!
Penumbra Online will be hosting its virtual launch party for the journal's Summer 2021 edition on August 14th, from 2-3Pm (PST). This year our edition's theme was "Self-Love," and we were blown away by the many incredible pieces we received portraying the most difficult yet important love of all, self-love.
Join us as we celebrate our amazing authors and artists who made this edition possible. We're thrilled for the opportunity to present this edition of Penumbra Online as well as discuss our upcoming Fall edition spotlighting "Love for Others."
We hope you join us as we reflect on our Summer of Self-Love and celebrate the launch! Click the link here or down below to join our Zoom room. This event is entirely free, though we do provide our guests the opportunity to donate to the Warrior Food Pantry, which helps Stanislaus State students.
