Publisher’s description: At Raleigh Review we believe that great literature inspires empathy by allowing us to see the world through the eyes of our neighbors, whether across the street or across the globe. Our mission is to foster the creation and availability of accessible yet provocative contemporary literature through our biannual magazine as well as through workshops, reading, and other community events.
In Raleigh Review’s short tenure, we’re proud to have published emerging writers alongside nationally-known, award-winning authors. We have been recognized multiple times by Best of the Net for our fiction and poetry selections and have also received critical praise. From NewPages review of Raleigh Review Volume 2 (by Erin F. Robinson):
“A young magazine, only on its second volume, Raleigh Review pulls off an understated maturity in its choice of fiction and poetry pieces, while the artwork is playful and quirky. It is a magazine that takes itself seriously, but not to a fault, with an impressive list of heavy hitters… A lovely read with a refreshing new voice.”
Volume 4 features work by C. Wade Bentley, Elizabeth Breen, John F. Buckley, Jill Coyle, Geri Digiorno, Panagiota Doukas, Jacqueline Doyle, Susan Frith, Karen Harryman, Gregory Josselyn, Alisha Karabinus, Debra Kaufman, Kristin Laurel, Dorianne Laux, Marsha Mathews, Susan McDonough-Hintz, Joseph Millar, Ruby Newman, Andrea O'Rourke, Martin Ott, Rick Rohdenburg, Mark Rosenblum, Dani Sandal, Eric Paul Shaffer, Pierce Tyler, Emily Wilson, and Debra Wuliger.
Volume 3 won a Summit International Award Summit Creative Award (gold level) for cover art/design. This issue features work by Dorianne Laux, John Balaban, Doug Anderson, Scott Owens, and David Rigsbee, among others.
