The Pen Literary Magazine

The Pen aims to celebrate the artistic voices of CCRI’s students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The arts are a mirror, and our hope is to reflect the joy, wonder, pain, love, activism, and fantasy of our contributors: facets of life exhibited through poetry, prose, and visual arts.
