Welcome

The San Joaquin Valley Journal offers a refereed forum for the discussion of literature, critical theory, rhetoric and composition, pedagogy, and issues relevant to teaching in academe. SJVJ is particularly interested in scholarly essays that engage issues and ideas in connection with the literature and culture of the San Joaquin Valley.

In view of its regional emphasis, SJVJ also welcomes profiles on San Joaquin Valley writers, creative nonfiction, book reviews, faculty interviews, and commentaries related to the middle and southern portions of California’s Central Valley. The San Joaquin Valley Journal is now accepting submissions for its Spring 2011 edition.
