Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Southern Review is one of the nation’s premier literary journals. Hailed by Time as “superior to any other journal in the English language,” we have made literary history since our founding in 1935. The Southern Review strives to discover and promote a diverse array of engaging, relevant, and challenging literature—including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and translation from literary luminaries as well as the best established and emerging writers. The journal also features a broad range of visual artists from across the South and around the globe.
