  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Steel Toe Review publishes a (roughly) quarterly online issue and an annual print issue (except that one year when we didn’t). We publish mainly literary short stories and poetry, but also essays, creative non-fiction, one-act plays, and visual art. We favor Southern writers and Southern themes, but we are willing to consider any writing of quality. What we really enjoy doing is connecting writers from the South and writers from elsewhere, and we hope that the writers we publish will read each other’s work and follow up on those connections. We are also very interested in tradition and the myriad ways writers push boundaries of tradition while still recognizing where they come from.
