Publisher’s description: Dedicated to publishing fine fiction, non-fiction, plays, screenplays, poetry, literary cartoons, photography and art, TSR opens its pages to writers from across the globe whose work is compelling. Our pages are equally devoted to emerging and established writers and artists. Some of the writers and artists we have featured: Billy Collins, Meg Wolitzer, Patrcia Marx, Helen Simonson, W.S. Merwin, Frank McCourt, Matthew Klam, Kaylie Jones, Robert Reeves, Marsha Norman, Bharati Mukherjee, Elena Gorokhova, Julie Sheehan, Daniel Menaker, and David Rakoff.

Our readers comment on the quality of the work, as well as the beauty of each issue. Jules Feiffer calls TSR “gorgeous.” Roger Rosenblatt says each issue is “stunning.” Our goal in putting The Southampton Review together is to create a literary journal that readers will keep for a very long time, that they will dip into again and again, discovering new voices and visions while savoring long-standing favorites. Submission guidelines can be found on our website:

Recent Issues:

This fiction issue (Spring 2014), edited by Susan Scarf Merrell, is devoted to the obsessive myopic passion of all artists, and particularly novelists and short story writers. As you page through this fiction issue of TSR, you will find a wide variety of storytelling styles . . . Famous writers and young students appear here, grappling with the questions that most interest and concern them . . . Funny, sad, painful; experimental, traditional, flash—no matter what form the stories here take, or what tales the authors choose to tell, each one has truth at the core of its created world.
