Publisher's Description: Presenting the best writing of today, while shaping literature's tomorrow. Introducing new voices alongside the most respected writers of our generation, KR showcases writing that illuminates and expands the cultural conversation.
“Literary magazinese come and go. There’s a good reason why, after 70 years, The Kenyon Review is not only still standing, but thriving. From John Crow Ransom to the present, the editors have always gambled on greatness, and consistently won.”
Recent years have seen the work of such writers as Carl Phillips, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Mark Strand, Joyce Carol Oates, George Steiner, and Ron Carlson appear in the pages of KR, along with authors who are emerging as the bright lights of the next generation, such as Amit Majmudar, Meghan O’Rourke, and Megan Mayhew Bergman. Since 2008, we’ve published KROnline, doubling the publishing space available in our traditional print format. Visit our website to read KROnline and check out our KR author interview series.
