The Acorn Review literary journal is a publication of Grossmont College in El Cajon, California. All residents of San Diego County are welcome to submit work to Acorn Review. In particular, the journal welcomes submissions from the Grossmont College community including current and former students and staff of Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges.  Submissions in multiple categories are encouraged, but contributors must adhere to the submission limits in place for each category. The current submission period for Acorn Review will open May 20, 2017 and close at midnight on January 1, 2018. Acorn Review is generally published each Fall semester and copies are available for purchase in the Grossmont College campus bookstore. 

All work is judged anonymously by student editors, and selections are based on literary and artistic merit.  Acorn Review does not provide feedback on individual submissions. Student editors are enrolled in English 145: Acorn Review Editing and Production.
