The Suisun Valley Review was established as a way for the students of Solano Community College to learn the art and craft of editing a literary journal while putting together their own magazine once a year. Since the first issue was published in 1981, student editors have collaborated on over thirty issues of SVR, carefully selecting the contents from new and established writers from across the U.S. and abroad. The students are also directly involved with creating the overall design aesthetic and narrative of each issue. Each spring, all of their hard work and endless creative energy is repaid with a bound collection of prose and poetry, sold and kept as a testament to sleepless nights.
SVR's 2014 Submission Guidelines

Friday, February 22, 2013

ANNNNND We're Off! the start of voting on actual submissions that is. After our editors met again for the first time after a long one week break, (Do we sound like absolute bums yet?) we seem like we're all set to start judging the real things.
That said, we've moved into phase one of the operation: Most of our currently submitted work is viewable to our editors to start chit chattering away and reading. We know for a fact a great deal of them were anxious to get out of the kiddie stuff/practice discussions and onto the big boys.

So! If you submitted to us this year (and, uh, why shouldn't you? Our submissions are open to everyone, after all!) you're bound to start hearing from us soon!

Happy submitting!

Hibernation's Over!

It's that time of year again! You know, where you submit to your favorite literary magazine: Suisun Valley Review!

Much like bears, squirrels, other woodland beasts, and tortoises, SVR's editor committee takes a break about accepting and reviewing submissions until the spring. But with the arrival of Solano Community College's spring semester, so comes the arrival of this year's batch of editors! We're all super jazzed to get to work on reviewing submissions, and are very likely to jump right into that in the following weeks. Until then, submit!

Submissions are open to anyone, SCC student or not!, until March 31st, 2013!

You can check out our Facebook page for more details. (And friend us while you're at it! We're a social bunch!)
