The Cedar Valley Divide

The Cedar Valley Divide is the arts and literary magazine of Kirkwood Community College. Each year, The Divide is produced by a dedicated group of student editors along with a faculty advisor from the Kirkwood English department. Its content is derived from the many talented artists, writers, and poets who either attend Kirkwood or live and work in the communities that Kirkwood serves.

Since 1981, the annual publication of the Cedar Valley Divide has given people a unique opportunity to contribute and be a part of the vibrant artistic community that exists at Kirkwood and beyond. This site is merely another chapter in that already long and distinguished history. We look forward to discovering new ways to showcase the incredible talent that this community has to offer.
