Publisher's description: The Rathalla editorial staff is comprised an ensemble of supportive and committed writers and artists currently enrolled in Rosemont College’s M.F.A. in Creative Writing or M.A. in Publishing program. Rathalla Review is a testament to the partnership between these two programs as we blend the creative arts with the “business” of publishing and concretely further the program emphasis on “push to publish.”

Our mission is to develop a community of writers, artists, and readers through our online and print publications and through involvement and interaction with other writing and publishing programs. Our once-a-year print issue comprises the best work of both our spring and fall online issues. For each online issue, we look for a single artist to focus the layout of the issue and add a distinct visual flair. We’re looking for fresh, energetic work in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that shows dedication and appreciation of the craft of writing.

Recent Issues:

Rathalla Review’s 2013 annual print issue features the best from the 2013 Spring and Fall issues, including four works of fiction, two works of creative nonfiction, an array of poems, and artwork from featured artists Dr. Ernet Williamson III and Jackie O’Brien. Other special features include an interview with UPenn memoir professor and author Beth Kephart, as well as a reflection on the work of Anne Lamott by creative nonfiction editor Tracy Kaufmann Wood.
