"Artistically Claiming Freedom Across

Sub-Cultures and Public Schooling"

by Angela Marie Butkus

Entering its 66th year of publication, Statement Magazine is California State University, Los Angeles’s student-run journal of literature and art. Students gain valuable professional and educational experience by assuming responsibility for all aspects of producing this magazine and learning many new skills. Major national and international writers and artists appear in its pages alongside talented creative students, many of whom have gone on to become highly respected figures themselves.

Statement’s pages have been graced by U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove and Los Angeles’s first Poet Laureate Eloise Klein Healy, along with countless others including Wanda Coleman, Charles Bukowski, Ai, Luis Rodriguez, Carolyn See and Sesshu Foster. Statement has also been distinguished with national recognition.
In 2008, the magazine received the National Program Director’s Prize in Content from the Association of Writers and Writing Programs, competing against the literary magazines of 400 other universities.
