Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Northern New England Review (NNER) is a literary journal devoted to and inspired by place. We explore place as an idea, an incantation, a pin in a map, a mood, and the vital tension between past and present. NNER is published by Franklin Pierce University as a creative voice for the Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont region. If you live here, are from here, found your heart here, or are currently searching for it among the dappled forests and ghostly coasts, we want to read your words. We appreciate work that is delicately crafted, viscerally felt, and feverishly imaginative. We produce one full volume per year in addition to various ebooks and online spotlights (e.g., Pandemic Poetry ebook, Summer Spotlight, Autumn Spotlight). We are a fully inclusive journal, committed to diversity in every aspect of NNER's publication.
