About Us

Name and Mission

A “bricolage” is something that is created from a variety of materials. We think this is the perfect name for our literary and visual arts journal because it acknowledges the diverse styles of artistic mediums and genres that we publish, while at the same time recognizing the concordant nature of our publication.

Our mission is to collect works of high-quality literature, visual art, and music and produce a professional journal showcasing the creativity of the University of Washington’s talented and diverse individuals and community.
