Criterion, a journal of literary criticism by students, is published each spring by the Loyola Marymount University English Department through the support of the Denise L. Scott Memorial Fund. Edited by undergraduates, Criterion seeks contributions representative of undergraduate and graduate writing. Submissions are preferably between five and fifteen double-spaced pages, and there can be no more than two submissions per student. They must be in the style of the Modern Language Association and should be submitted electronically, to the Criterion email account,, before the annual deadline.  This year's deadline is January 29, 2014.
