The ESCOM Journal is a publication of the Emeritus Students College of Marin and is published on alternative months online.  A limited number of printed copies are available in the ESCOM Centers at both the Kentfield and Indian Valley campuses.  ESCOM members are invited to submit news items, or creative works, such as original art, photography, poetry, memoir and fiction to the editor.  The deadline for each issue is the 15th of the prior month.  Submissions or questions and comments should be addressed to the editor:

We thank our Editor, Denize for her single-handed resurrection of the Journal and for creating such a beautiful publication for our members. 

The ESCOM Journal welcomes your submissions.

Submit your final, proofed work.  Changes, unless absolutely necessary, will not be accepted after submission.

Include your name in file name and on the page of any document.  You must be an ESCOM member to submit work.

Written work must be single spaced, left margin oriented, and attached as a Word doc.  Do not submit pdf’s of written work (as these cannot be properly transferred or edited).

Art and photographic images must be no larger than 300 kb and attached to the email in the pdf or jpeg format (not imbedded in the email message).

If your poem must center, please note.  Misspellings, grammatical errors and erroneous line breaks could be mistaken as the author’s intent and not corrected.  Proof all copy before sending.

Information for “In Memorian” must be verified with an obituary that appears in an official resource such as a newspaper to avoid errors. 

The journal can also be found online and downloaded for your reading pleasure at

The production of the ESCOM Journal is supported by the Joan Hopper Trust.
