Contributions from a number of Solano Community College students, past and present, were selected for publication in the 2015 edition of the Suisun Valley Review (SVR), Solano’s literary magazine, established in 1981 by Quinton Duval.

Elizabeth Campbell, English major and 2015 Quinton Duval awardee, will see her prize-winning poem, Winters’ Coming, published along with another poem, Hunting Season. Dylan Youngers, majoring in mathematics and linguistics, received Honorable Mention for between drinking and drowning is a fine, fine line, which will see print in the Quinton Duval Award section.

Anita Nygren, another English major, has been a student editor for the Suisun Valley Review for two years. This year, her poem, Gaslight, was anonymously chosen for publication.

“Being published was one goal I wanted to meet before I graduated,” said Nygren. “Words can’t describe the joy I feel knowing that I have achieved my goal.”

  • Joshua Gray (exe)

    I was also apart of the poetry club and learned a lot about poetry which was actually very fun. If you go here join as many clubs as you can but don’t forget your school work I know I didn’t enjoy!
