Our goal in putting The Southampton Review together is to create a literary journal that readers will keep for a very long time, that they will dip into again and again, discovering new voices and visions while savoring long-standing favorites.
Our pages are equally devoted to emerging and established writers and artists. Some of the writers and artists we have featured: Billy Collins, Meg Wolitzer, Patrcia Marx, Helen Simonson, W.S. Merwin, Frank McCourt, Matthew Klam, Kaylie Jones, Robert Reeves, Marsha Norman, Bharati Mukherjee, Elena Gorokhova, Julie Sheehan, Daniel Menaker, Amy Hempel, Roxana Robinson, Rahid Nachlin, Timothy Liu, Major Jackson, and David Rakoff.
