Metonym is a fledging publication of William Jessup University's English Program, located near Sacramento, California. Staffed by students, our literary journal is a yearly, periodic collection of original fiction, poetry, literary nonfiction, and visual art.

     At its origin, Metonym was the place for the young poets and writers within the program to gain knowledge and experience in the field of publishing. In five years' time, the journal has come to mean much more. As an array of backgrounds and majors have joined the journal, it has become a profound learning experience. It is here that students not only grow in their knowledge of literature and publishing, but in their knowledge of truth, as well.

     With five journals under our belt, the current Metonym staff could not be more proud of its past, or more elated about what is in store for the future contributors and readers. As always, our aim is simple: publish the best, and let great writing speak for itself.
