Before Exposition Review, there was the Southern California Review. SCR was the literary journal of the students of the Master of Professional Writing Program at USC. When USC announced that the MPW program would close its doors in 2016, editors both past and present–current students and alumni–came together to find a way to keep the spirit of the journal alive.

Exposition Review is proud of our history and honored to continue on the legacy and tradition of the Master of Professional Writing program and Southern California Review.

Below, you can view the volumes & some of the work published by the editors of Exposition Review:
