Cover of VC Voices 2013

VC Voices publishes work by undergraduate, faculty and staff writers and artists at Ventura College. We invite submissions of poetry, short stories, creative nonfiction chapters of novels, a variety of plays, essays, photography, and artwork.  We do not accept previously published work.

How to submit:

Instead of a traditional print publication, VC Voices is now entirely online.  We are now able to publish a wider variety of work, and we’ll be able to share it openly with the larger community interested in Ventura College.
While traditionally VC Voices  published essays written in various English classes, one of our top priorities is to branch out and include written work and art from as many areas of study as possible. We want this to be a diverse publication in its content and style. When we’re all done, we hope to have a fun, vibrant, engaging collection of work to show off.
If you’re eager to publish your work, please visit our website:
We welcome all kinds of writing and art, so please consider sharing your work with readers here at Ventura College and the larger community by publishing online with VC Voices.
