Write On, Downtown

Celebrating the intercultural, intergenerational, collegial and communal space of collaboration that is Phoenix.


Write On, Downtown is the journal of student and community writing produced on Arizona State University’s Downtown Phoenix campus. For years, the journal’s mission was simply to showcase the creative and investigative work of students on the Downtown Phoenix campus. However, in our most recent issues we have proudly debuted a broader range of voices, perspectives, and styles, all of which are essential to the (re)birthing of our city as an intercultural, intergenerational, collegial, and communal space of collaboration.

Thus, we now feature evocative work with a “Downtown ethos” produced by ASU students, students from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, as well as community members. We want it to be the university journal that breaks the mold, and we’re committed to collapsing old paradigms and arbitrary boundaries in the process, building bridges between university and community.
