SPECTRUM is an annual journal of art and literature published by UC Santa Barbara's College of Creative Studies. Founded in 1957, it is the longest-standing literary magazine in the UC system. We frequently receive and accept submissions from several other distinguished universities outside of the UC system, such as Sarah Lawrence College and Cornell University. Over the years, SPECTRUM has published work by luminaries like Alex Ortolani, Jervey Tervalon, Chris Lauer, William Carlos Williams, and Raymond Carver.
The current Editor is Tayler Heuston.
