Spindrift, Shoreline Community College’s award-winning art and literary journal, has been publishing student, local and regional art and literature since 1966. Every year, hundreds of student artists and writers submit their work for the opportunity to be published. The journal is designed by a team of students and faculty who hold a jury show each year to select the pieces for publication. Each selected artwork or photograph is then paired with a literary work and published in the journal for the public to purchase and enjoy.
Spindrift has placed top in the nation among colleges for many years. In 2005 and 2010, Spindrift was awarded 1st place in the Community College Humanities Association’s Literary Magazine Competition and in 2011, Spindrift placed 3rd in CCHA's Pacific-Western Division.
However, the team behind Spindrift gain the greatest rewards, because they are given real-world experience with working on a production team and many former students that have worked on Spindrift have received the opportunity to work for some amazing companies such as the Seattle Times.
