Publisher’s Description: IR publishes short fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that is well-crafted and lively, has an intelligent sense of form and language, assumes a degree of risk, and has consequence beyond the world of their speakers or narrators.
As a biannual, MFA-run literary review, Indiana Review considers previously unpublished poetry, fiction, essays, graphic arts, interviews, and translations. Our mission is to offer the highest quality writing within a wide aesthetic.
Works by contributors to IR have been awarded the Pushcart Prize and reprinted in The Pushcart Prize Anthology: Best of the Small Presses, as well as in the O. Henry Awards, Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, and Best New American Voices. In addition, Indiana Review is recognized as one of the top 50 fiction markets by Writer’s Digest and in 1996 was selected as the first place winner of the American Literary Magazine Award.
