Enizagam is staffed and edited entirely by the teenage writers at Oakland School for the Arts, a public arts charter in downtown Oakland. The covers of all issues feature work by teenage artists. This is local, independent art at its finest—by supporting Enizagam, you’re not only supporting innovative new literature, but Oakland’s youth and arts education as well.
