The Yahara Journal is Madison College's student-produced fine arts and literary journal.  

The publication consists entirely of poetry, prose, and artwork created by Madison College students. The Yahara Journal student organization is also a driving force behind many events around the campuses related to writing and art. The Yahara Journal sponsors poetry readings, art shows, contests, and more, all in hopes of inspiring students to enjoy literature and art and to create their masterpieces. As a student, you can submit your work to the Journal. You can also be apart of the staff that creates the Journal.
