Now celebrating its 31st year in print, The Chattahoochee Review is under all new editorship: Editor Anna Schachner, Managing Editor Lydia Ship, Fiction Editor Andy Rogers, Nonfiction Editor Louise McKinney, Poetry Editor Michael Diebert; Art Editor Claire Paul, and Social Media Editor Michael Rowley.
Managing Editor Lydia Ship writes: “Although our roots are in the South and we publish important writers such as William Gay, George Singleton, and Natasha Trethewey, we also publish writers from other regions of the U.S. and other countries such as Denmark, Mexico, Romania, and England. We are committed to exploring literature in translation and to writers who transgress borders, cultural and otherwise. While the Review features poetry, fiction, nonfiction, interviews, reviews, and occasional graphic work, we are also open to nontraditional forms. We value established writers but take great pride in discovering new voices. Work from The Chattahoochee Review is regularly featured in nationally published anthologies and books.”
The Chattahoochee Review is currently seeking poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for a special issue on Southern Literature to be published in late 2011, with a particular interested in writing that:
1. Challenges the traditional definition of “Southern”
2. Addresses the concerns of ethnicity in the South
3. Uses humor with originality and intelligence
4. Blends the gothic with other literary modes
5. Defies geography and the use of the vernacular as the only conditions of Southern identity
