In Memory of Quinton Duval
Established in 2009 to honor Quinton Duval, Professor Emeritus of English and Creative Writing and long-time faculty advisor to Suisun Valley Review, the Quinton Duval Award in Creative Writing recognizes excellence in the creative work of current students at Solano Community College. Submissions are first juried by the creative writing faculty, and finalists are forwarded to a guest judge who determines the winner and any honorable mention.
The winning author has his or her name added to a memorial plaque located in the Solano College Library. In addition, the winner is awarded a monetary sum and will see his/her winning piece published in that year’s issue of Suisun Valley Review. Any honorable mentions may also be published. Submissions are also considered independently for publication in the forthcoming issue of Suisun Valley Review by the current editorial staff.
