We would love to include alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and administration to submit a short bio along with their poem, short fiction, or creative nonfiction piece. We want you to submit that poem you’ve been sitting on for 4 years. We’d love to provide you with positive and editorial feedback to make your piece stand out. Whether your submission is a single piece or a collection of work, we welcome it all. 
We love Google Docs at the American River Review, so send us your best work to

16th Annual Fall Ethics Symposium
Ethics and the City
All are invited to join the conversation on ethics and the city at this year’s fall symposium, which will be held virtually from Wednesday, September 29 through Wednesday, October 13, sponsored by Cosumnes River College and the Sacramento State Center for Practical and Professional Ethics.
Cities are underrated engines of well-being. But in many ways their performance is handicapped by policy affected by ignorance, inertia, racism, and other forms of inequity. Can the creative and cooperative forces driving cities be made to outpace the effects of such policies? What sort of policies effectively rectify the handicapping forces and encourage the creative forces? Speakers will take up these and related questions from different disciplinary and ideological perspectives.
For a detailed schedule and registration links visit the Ethics Center website.
