riverSedge is a literary journal of culture and literature with an understanding of its place in the nation. Its name reflects our specific river edge of the Rio Grande Valley, with an openness to publish writers who use English, Tex Mex, and Spanish, and who explore border life in all its manifestations.
The “river’s edge” means many things: the edge of the Americas, divided by the Rio Grande, as well as the cutting edge of creativity in language and genre. riverSedge exists to provide an outlet for writers of excellence in the genres of creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, scriptwriting, visual art, and critical reviews.
