Toyon has been run by students since it was founded in 1954. It aims to promote creative writing and art-making on the North Coast, while also providing Humboldt students with practical experience in publishing. Regardless of their major, students can enroll in Toyon's English courses to learn about the editorial process, aesthetic theory, and publishing.

This year, contributors submitted pieces speaking to topics such as personal liberation, systemic racism, and environmental justice. Within the pages of the 70th-anniversary issue, contributors explore the essence and practice of liberation, whether it be on a personal scale or as a collective. Liberation work is healing work. Explore the topic of liberation through the beautiful contributions in this milestone issue. 

Toyon is a multilingual journal of literature and art that is edited and produced by Cal Poly Humboldt students. Its mission is to promote environmental and social justice. The student contributors seek diverse voices from around the world and welcome submissions in all languages.
