Recent issues:

TCR’s Spring 2014 issue features our Lamar York Prize winners, “Basic Composition” by Jeremy Collins (nonfiction), and “The Cartographers” by Alexander Weinstein (fiction), who is interviewed about his prize story on our blog. Whiting Award winner Stephanie Powell Watts and rising stars Tori Malcangio, Michael Noll, and Bipin Aurora are among fiction contributors, along with favorites of the literary community such as poet Jessica Piazza and nonfiction writer Okla Elliott. Nonfiction makes a particularly strong showing in this issue with other accomplished essays by Michael Smith and Lori Horvitz. Volume 34.1 also explores “Redneck Noir” literature.

Volume 33 Numbers 2 & 3. From Dr. Temple Grandin’s opening remarks about the emotional lives of animals to Ann Pancake’s lyric exploration of the impact of place on the human psyche to Daniel Hudon’s “brief eulogies for lost species,” this double issue on “The Animal” reminds us how much we share with animals and how we are animals ourselves, a theme poignantly rendered in Phong Nguyen’s story “Hush, Please,” comically celebrated in Paul Hostovsky’s poem “Big Picture,” and articulately argued in Dr. Randy Malamud’s theory about zoos. TCR is proud to feature its first graphic artist, Nick Francis Potter, and interviews him on the website.

Volume 33 Number 1. With this issue, The Chattahoochee Review is making history: it features the winners of two contests, and we are quite proud of the results. The issue also features work from Kwame Dawes, Amina Gautier, Heather Hartley, Ming Holden, Andrew Plattner, Doug Ramspeck, Patrick Ryan, Scott Withiam, and many more.
