Founded by Jim Krusoe in 1988, Santa Monica Review is a nationally distributed literary arts journal sponsored by Santa Monica College.

The journal is published twice yearly, in Fall and Spring.

The Review currently features literary fiction and nonfiction, though in past years also included poetry. SMR represents Santa Monica College’s commitment to the literary arts, community, and literacy.

In nearly thirty years of production, the Review has featured both first-time writers and established literary authors, with a focus on showcasing the work of Southern California and Pacific Rim writers.
