Publisher’s description: The Cumberland River Review is a quarterly online journal of new poetry, fiction, essays, and art, welcoming submissions from both national and international writers and artists.
We’re excited to present, in the months ahead, new poems by Lisa Dominguez Abraham, Bruce Bond, Joanne Diaz, Ricardo Pau-Llosa, Doug Ramspeck and other fine poets; work by the fantastic visual artists Adria Arch, Jackie Branson, and Kate Kern; and, in our first issue, a masterful piece of short fiction by the Russian-American writer Margarita Meklina.
Each issue of The Cumberland River Review features nine or ten poems and one or two stories or essays, all chosen on the basis of their excellence. While we read with no particular theme or issue-length arc in mind, we’re always happy when one develops. Our goal, always, is to feature work of moral consequence—work that transports us. Please check us out.
