SMC’s Literary Journal Spring Issue Available

The Spring 2010 issue of Santa Monica Review, SMC’s national literary arts journal that showcases national talent and – increasingly – Southern California writers, has been released.

Published twice yearly, the Review showcases the literary voices of established authors and emerging writers. Founded by SMC English professor Jim Krusoe (Blood Lake, Iceland, Girl Factory, Erased), the Review has presented readers experimental, thoughtful, and funny works of fiction and nonfiction for more than 20 years and has achieved a reputation as one of the West Coast’s leading journals.

The Spring 2010 issue of Santa Monica Review, edited by Andrew Tonkovich, includes work by frequent contributors: acclaimed poet and short story writer Gary Fincke (Sorry I Worried You), novelists Diane Lefer (California Transit) and Greg Bills (Fearful Symmetry), as well as grown-up fiction by Young Adult author Michael Cadnum (The King’s Arrow).

Also included are short stories by Orange County fable writer Linda Purdy; award-winning screenwriter Rocelle Rosett from her series portraying faith and ritual among characters living in Los Angeles; and first-time contributors Sean Bernard of Claremont and T. D. Anderson from West Hollywood.

Tonkovich has included the work of frequent local contributors in this volume.

“One of our goals as a West Coast journal is to boost the work of Southern Californians,” he says. “This issue features regional authors whose fiction and nonfiction continue, happily, to define and celebrate and reexamine our experiences. They also happen to be some of the best fiction and nonfiction creative writers anywhere.”

Cover art for the Spring 2010 edition is artist Deborah Davidson’s “Desire.”

The Santa Monica Review is available for $7 an issue or $12 a year online as well as at the SMC Bookstore, Beyond Baroque and Small World Books in Venice, and other local and national chain booksellers.
Copies are also available by mail and by subscription through Santa Monica Review, Santa Monica College, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405.



Writer Gray Fincke is included in the current issue of the Santa Monica Review.
