Foothills

The University of Denver's Visual and Textual Magazine

 

ABOUT FOOTHILLS

Foothills Undergraduate Visual and Textual Magazine was first published in 1946. In the over 70 years since the conception of Foothills, the magazine has taken on wide variety of forms. Despite the aesthetic variations of the magazine, it has consistently published high quality creative work by undergraduate students. The 2022 Foothills team is excited to continue this legacy.

As a publication we are interested in the inbetween; that of, relating to, or being in transition. The state of standing on a doorstep, writing around the doorbell. We look to read writing that pokes its fingers through the seams of gender and race, geographic position, the blank space between the frames on a roll of film. Send us art that gets lost in the foothills on the way to the mountains.

Foothills is a literary and arts magazine based at the University of Denver, nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Foothills publishes creative writing and visual art by undergraduate students. We seek to showcase daring and courageous creative work and to promote conversation and collaboration between young artists.
