The Leonardo Magazine

Leonardo is CNM's student arts and literary magazine. The Leonardo features poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, visual art, and multimedia created by students across CNM’s campuses.

The Leonardo provides an exciting opportunity for creative students to see their work in print, and for our student editors to gain publishing experience while still in school.
