General note

Historical Note

Saxifrage was born in the 1974-1975 academic. Instigated by PLU student Megan Beckman, Saxifrage soon became a very successful medium for student writers and artists to collaborate and publish their work for the PLU community. Students submit their work to Saxifrage anonymously and all submissions are judged carefully. In its formative years Saxifrage submissions were judged by faculty.
