Formerly known as Basalt, Stonecrop Magazine is a non-profit open access publication designed and edited by students of College of Western Idaho. Stonecrop is funded by CWI's Arts & Humanities Department.
We publish original works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art, with new issues printed each Spring. Our review period begins in September and extends through December.
Stonecrop is proud to collaborate with Storyfort, an integral branch of Treefort Music Fest held in downtown Boise, Idaho. As part of its annual tradition, Storyfort invites literary minds near and far to write, read, and enrich. 
The top three winners of the Storyfort Micro Fiction Contest receive prizes and get their stories published in the spring issue of Stonecrop Magazine.
Look for Storyfort on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram: @storyfortfest
