Twice yearly in print and online (aXmag), The Jackson Hole Review publishes fiction, essays, poetry and visual arts emphasizing themes relative to the West in a broad sense: “Small towns and mountain towns from the Rockies to the Great Smokies share their quest for the American identity with the neighborhoods of the Midwest and the coasts, whether city or suburb.”
The inaugural Spring 2011 issue is themed Connect/Disconnect. Author Kim Barnes has observed, “There are so many ways in which the West – or at least the idea of the West – is a study in contradictions. We are both nomadic and desirous to put down roots… We want both community and isolation.”
