Chinook Publication

Chinook, meaning warm wind, was introduced to the Otero College campus by veteran instructor, Tim Walsh, who sponsored the publication for roughly twenty-five years. Over the years, it has supported hundreds of writers' voices through poetry, essays, short stories, and art work. Submissions in each year's addition are not only from the La Junta area, but also surrounding schools, businesses, and individuals.
