Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

We will present submillimeter (submm) polarized imaging of the nearby star-forming galaxies M82 and NGC253. The data, obtained with the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory in Hawaii, probe the emission from dust grains aligned by magnetic fields in these galaxies, and thus fields in relatively dense regions of the galaxies.
