Established in 2021, Kings River Review is a biannual journal associated with Reedley College that publishes artwork, short stories, creative nonfiction, and poetry from 2-year community college students from all around the United States. As part of the editing team, I have been able to see behind the scenes and have been both in awe and intimidated by the amount of work that goes into creating this one-of-a-kind publication. An addition that has been made for the upcoming issue is the acceptance of screenplay submissions, which is very exciting!
If you are interested in submitting, understand that to submit, you must be a 2-year community college student. Aside from that, there are more specific requirements based on the type of work submitted. For more details, please see the flyer below. (For a complete list of requirements see below). The Kings River Review is published every semester, so you need not worry if you missed the deadline or your work was rejected.
Should a submission get accepted for publication, the author would receive a free copy of the issue, called a vanity copy. Additional copies of past and current issues will be available for purchase online as soon as the Fall 2022 semester.
