Matchbox Magazine is a student-run literary and arts magazine based at UC Santa Cruz that publishes talented writers, artists, and musicians from the entire undergraduate population of the UC system. As the only student publication that is UC-wide, Matchbox is an important way for UC students to have their creative voices widely heard, and to hear voices and perspectives from all over the state that they might not have otherwise been exposed to. Not only does Matchbox provide amazing learning opportunities for our staff, but it also provides a singular forum for writers and artists who might otherwise be overlooked.

If you are curious about how you can help support Matchbox Magazine, please click this link to donate! All proceeds go to printing costs of the newest edition, which is currently Issue 13 and we would all greatly appreciate it! It only takes $5 to print one book! That's right! So if you would like to help or know of anyone who would like to reach out and support us please share!
