SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL AUGUST 1, 2020!

The publication of the Spring 2020 The Grapevine Journal will be put on hold due to the physical closure of our campuses. Please continue to submit your work here, as we will publish our next volume in Fall 2020. Thank you for your commitment to BC!

Current Bakersfield College students are eligible for publication in this journal and we welcome work from all disciplines. We encourage submissions representing the full range of works–scholarly papers, creative works (including poems, plays, stories, artwork, photos, musical or dramatic performances), and most other media. There is a monetary prize for best submission! A Celebration of Work is held in The Levan Center that includes family and friends of each student published.

Please submit all work through the submission form below. If you have material that you have trouble submitting here (due to a large file size, for example), please send us a message through our Contact Us page.

New this year: All submitted artwork will be considered for publication on the cover!
