STLCC-Wildwood's Annual Literary Journal


Writing and making art—doing creative work—can be some of the most mysterious and private activity a person does. But Sycamore allows writers and artists to share their work—and it allows readers and viewers to contemplate and celebrate it.

About Sycamore

Sycamore was introduced more than a decade ago by professors Layla Goushey and Mark Weber. The idea was to design a magazine that would capture and share students’ artistic endeavors, in both creative writing and art.

Over the years, faculty members at Wildwood have continued to develop and refine the publication. Currently, Sarah Fielding, Ph.D., professor of English, and Mark Weber, MFA, instructor and gallery coordinator, serve as the faculty editors for Sycamore.
