What is Cipher?

Cipher is a magazine published out of Colorado College, in Colorado Springs. With a few exceptions, we publish the work of Colorado College students. There are no content parameters, but the magazine usually covers stories within Colorado. The magazine publishes investigative and expository pieces as well as memoir and fiction. Above all, we work hard to publish stories worth telling. 


How do I write for Cipher?

Open pitch meetings are held in the main space of Worner Center on the first Tuesday of every block at 7 p.m. This is the ideal place to brainstorm, get ideas, and claim articles to write. If you miss the meeting (and it's totally okay if you do), email Emperor Ethan (ethan [dot] cutler [at] coloradocollege [dot] edu) and you'll be assigned an editor that will guide you through the writing process. First week is the best time to claim an article, although eleventh-hour submissions (especially fiction) are always welcome.


Where do I find Cipher?

Cipher comes out on the third week of every block (hopefully). You'll find it scattered in every building across Colorado College, as well as some local cafés and dentist offices in the Springs. If you live a great distance from Cipher, you can subscribe and witness print copies in your mailbox.
