Publisher’s description: Cold Mountain Review is a forum for well-told stories. We publish the narrative poetry and lyrical prose, and we are interested in the way contemporary literature is testing the boundaries of genre. Each issue of CMR features work intended to transport the reader to unexpected landscapes—emotional terrains that are sometimes joyful, occasionally disconcerting, always interesting.

Since its founding 35 years ago, CMR has featured writers such as Robert Morgan, R.T. Smith, Natasha Trethewey, Virgil Suarez, and Fred Chappell. CMR contributors have among them an Academy Award in Literature, and a number of other accolades that attest to the quality of conversation that has long been taking place in the pages of CMR.

Writers have different approaches to storytelling, and they write for varied reasons; but when they publish their work in CMR, they are telling their story directly to you, the reader. Lean in. Listen.
