Publisher’s Description: For over thirty-five years, The Florida Review has published quality fiction, nonfiction, graphic narrative, poetry, interviews, and reviews from established and emerging writers. Recent issues include work from Billy Collins, David Huddle, Denise Duhamel, Tony Hoagland, Alex Lemon, Steven Harvey, Maureen Stanton, and Terese Svoboda. Our pages have also featured fiction, poetry, interviews, and essays by such internationally renowned writers as Margaret Atwood, Bob Shacochis, Stephen Dixon, Grace Paley, Lorrie Moore, Mark Doty, Tobias Wolff, David Foster Wallace, Tony Early and Virgil Suárez.
The Florida Review has been listed in Writer's Digest's “Fiction Fifty,” and creative pieces first printed in our magazine have been reprinted and awarded “special mention” in The Pushcart Prizes: Best of the Small Presses and several of the Best American collections.
The Florida Review is published twice annually, Winter and Summer. Our annual Editors Prize contest is held each Winter and awarded in Spring. Awards of $1000 are given in each of three genres: fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. We also sponsor the annual Jeanne M. Leiby Memorial Chapbook Award in fiction or graphic narrative with a December 1 deadline and first-prize of $1,000 and letterpress chapbook publication.
