Publisher’s Description: The Gettysburg Review, published by Gettysburg College, is recognized as one of the country’s premier journals. Since its debut in 1988, more than one hundred short stories, poems, and essays first published in its pages have been reprinted in the prize anthologies The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses, The Best American Poetry, The Best American Essays, The Best American Mystery Stories, The Best American Short Stories, Best American Voices, Best New Poets, New Stories from the South, and Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, or have reappeared in such esteemed publications as Harper’s and Utne Reader.
In addition, the Gettysburg Review's editing, elegant design, and stunning graphics have earned numerous prizes, including a Best New Journal award and four Best Journal Design awards from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals, the most recent of which was granted in 2003, and a PEN/Nora Magid Award for Excellence in Editing. Contributors include luminaries such as E. L. Doctorow, Rita Dove, James Tate, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Wilbur, and Donald Hall as well as emerging artists such as James Haug, Ginger Strand, Kyle Minor, Holly Goddard Jones, and Charles Yu.
With its award-winning editing, writing, and design, the Gettysburg Review is, as one reader put it, “Pure delight, every time.”
In the Spring 2014 edition, you will find the usual assortment of delights, but highlights include “Telref,” Edward McPherson’s story about a young, hip couple’s experience of 9/11 NYC, “A Duck with One Leg,” Aviya Kushner’s essay tribute to her childhood piano teacher, as well as poems by Richard Lyons, Meghan Privitello, and Lynn Domina.
