RRCC's Literary & Art Magazine: Obscura
What is Obscura?
One of the few literary magazines in the country to come out of a community college, Obscura is an annual literary and art magazine that features the creative work of RRCC students. The Obscura staff is made up entirely of students who take the Literary Magazine course (ENG231), offered every Spring Semester. Students in the class work as a team to select the best poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, and art from over a hundred student submissions each year.
