Our History: USC-MPW

Founded by the alumni of the Master of Professional Writing Program at University of Southern California, Exposition Review maintains the multi-genre tradition and spirit of MPW and its literary journal, the Southern California Review, after the program closed its doors in 2016.

Exposition Review is the result of hard work of MPW’s last graduating class, alumni, and former faculty as well as many former Southern California Review editors who came together to make sure this amazing community of writers and artists would live on beyond the program that brought them all together.
