Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
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 January. 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.

Submissions Policy
River and South Review seeks to be a home for work that evokes a visceral reaction, encourages continued conversation, captures the adventures of life, and spurs our readers to go find their own adventures to write about. As writers, we want writing that makes us wish we had written it. We want writing that makes us think and wonder; laugh and cry; sigh and scream; nod our heads yes and no. We want work that stays with us long after we’ve left the page. And, of course, we want all of this in well-crafted pieces that demonstrate skill with form and language. River & South Review publishes twice each year – a Summer issue in June and a Winter issue in January. *Submissions are open February 15 through April 15, with notifications sent by May 15 for summer issues. Submissions are open August 15 through October 15 with notifications sent by November 15 for winter issues. **For those who have previously submitted content, please wait one entire submission period before presenting additional creative work. ***River & South Review only publishes previously unpublished work, as we consider content appearing in print and online journals, anthologies, books, and personal blogs as published. DISCLAIMER: We do not publish work by anyone with an affiliation to Wilkes University, the Maslow Family Graduate Program in Creative Writing, or the writing workshops that Wilkes University offers.
