Publisher’s description: Founded in 2012 in Northeast Ohio, Chagrin River Review aims to publish the best contemporary short fiction and poetry available to readers today. The inaugural issue features edgy stories about humanity and loss by Jeanpaul Ferro and Joann Smith and a flash fiction piece by the emerging writer James B. De Monte. Poetry ranges in style and theme, including work by Barbara Brooks and Susan Grimm. You can read the first issue on our website, or click over to Issuu to read it in magazine format. While Ohio connections are welcome, we seek quality writing no matter the region that inspires it. The journal is edited by faculty at Lakeland Community College.
