It is also worth mentioning that San Francisco State University is one of the few California schools with a creative writing undergraduate major. In relation to that, let it also be said that SFSU holds a wonderful resource called the Poetry Center which archives audio, video, and print of just about every major (and many minor) poets who visit the Bay Area for the past (at least) forty years. It also houses a large collection of Beat Generation archival material.

SFSU publishes two literary magazines as well, Transfer and Fourteen Hills. Transfer is open to undergraduate SFSU students to submit prose and poetry, while Fourteen Hills is a graduate-level magazine open for submissions from just about anybody. Neither magazine is known for housing experimental works.
