Publisher’s description: The Cumberland River Review is a quarterly online journal of new poetry, fiction, essays, and art, welcoming submissions from both national and international writers and artists at any point in their careers.
Each issue of The Cumberland River Review features ten poems and one story or essay, all chosen on the basis of their excellence. While we read with no particular theme or issue-length arc in mind, we’re always happy when one develops. Our goal, always, is to feature work of moral consequence—work that transports us.
“I never read an issue of The Cumberland River Review without discovering writers whose work I want to seek out, writers I know we’ll all be hearing from in the future. Every issue is a revelation.”
—Davis McCombs, National Book Critics Circle Award finalist for Ultima Thule
