Prairie Light Review

Prairie Light Review, the Liberal Arts Journal of College of DuPage, has been published for 40 years. This free publication, funded by Student Activities fees, is the venue for creative work in District 502. It is a partnership between Student Life and the Liberal Arts Division. 

If you would like to join the editorial team, enroll in ENGLISH 2210 and learn the ins-and-outs of publishing, team-building and community engagement in District 502. As an experiential course, no experience is necessary.
