  • Papers (class assigned or independent)

  • Short Historical Fiction

  • Poetry

  • Photography/Photo Essays

  • Book Reviews (750-1000 words)

  • Artwork 

Priority deadline for the 2022-2023 Journal is November 10th, 2022

Send submissions to sonomahistoryjournal@gmail.com(link sends e-mail) 

The editorial team meets as a class to compile, edit, and publish the journal.  The group works together to cover all aspects of scholarly journal publication, including management, editing, setting up and implementing an anonymous review system, selection of manuscripts, layout, budgeting, production, sales, and distribution.  The final result is an academic journal authored and edited by the students themselves, for the purpose of furthering knowledge and appreciation of history.

For further information, or if you would like to join the editorial team, please contact Professor Kathleen Noonan at noonan@sonoma.edu(link sends e-mail) for further information.  Use the subject line “History Journal Inquiries”
