Pomona Valley Review 9

About

Established in 2002, Pomona Valley Review is a liberal arts journal published by English graduate students of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, by faculty, and by continuing graduate students from Cal Poly who are now pursuing doctoral work or developing their professional careers. Our staff includes English M.A. students or Ph.D. students whose focus is either rhetoric & composition, literature, or teaching English as a second or subsequent language; therefore, our perspectives capture the interdisciplinary atmosphere of our program and translate the scene to the page. We not only enjoy classic literature, but also edgy, provocative, and groundbreaking literature which attempts to deconstruct the paradigms that have supported the English intelligentsia over the past centuries. As mainly a geographic journal, Pomona Valley Review serves in part to portray the current literary environment of the West Coast, but, in particular, Southern California. Our publication largely features the work of upcoming authors who attend colleges and universities throughout Southern California, but we consider work outside of this area equally for submission.
