CONGRATULATIONS TO PROFESSOR MARTHA STODDARD HOLMES, the 2012 - 2013 Harry E. Brakebill Distinguished Professor at CSU San Marcos, who was recently featured on a website dedicated to outstanding faculty in the California State University!

1913 a journal of forms and 1913 Press are concerned with the intersections between art forms, locating a possible parallel between the early modern moment and our own, publishing contemporary works of poetry, prose, art, and translation from some of today’s most engaging artists in beautiful book-as-art-object form.

Newly housed in CSUSM’s Literature & Writing Studies department, 1913 serves as an experiential learning opportunity for our students.
