In an eighteen-month process, hundreds of pieces of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and alternative genre are submitted for consideration to the ARR staff. Every submission is read and the discussion of a single piece can last an entire class session. A final vote decides which works will be selected, edited, and published. The staff meets with the authors of the selected pieces to discuss the work and offer feedback for the author’s consideration with the goal of helping the piece reach its highest potential.
Students of American River College and participants in SummerWords: The American River College Creative Writing Colloquium are eligible to submit.
