What is the Waldorf Literary Review?

Previously called the Crusader, the Waldorf Literary Review is Waldorf’s literary magazine. The name was changed to bring continuity, recognition, and pride to the college in a literary sense.

The Waldorf Literary Review: A Journal of Engaged Writing is Waldorf College’s annual literary magazine, including work from students, alumni, faculty/staff, high school and prospective students, and community members. It strives to further the intellectual and artistic conversation on campus by publishing the strongest, most-vital creative work across the Waldorf community.

The Waldorf Literary Review is a dynamic and strikingly designed literary journal produced by students taking CWR 490: Literary Editing, an invitation-only, upper-level creative writing course.

The magazine features art, photography, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, playwriting, and other genres.

Each year the Waldorf Literary Review runs the Top of Iowa High School Creative Writing Contest, and the Salveson Prize in Poetry, Prose, Art, and Photography. Winners will be featured in that year’s edition.
