About

River and South Review is an online literary journal run by the students of the Maslow Family Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Wilkes University. We publish new, emerging and seasoned writers.

River and South Review seeks to be a home for work that evoked a visceral reaction, encourages continued conversation, captures the adventures of life, and spurs our readers to go find their own adventures to write about.

We want writing that catches our breath and makes us wish we had written it. We want writing that makes us think and wonder; laugh or cry; sigh or scream; nod our heads yes or no. We want work that stays with us long after we’ve left the page.

River and South Review publishes a Summer issue in June and a Winter issue in December.

River and South Review is the official journal of the Maslow Family Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Wilkes University. It offers our students the opportunity to learn all aspects of managing and publishing an online literary journal.
