River Heron Review is an online poetry journal first envisioned in New Hope, Pennsylvania by Robbin Farr and Judith Lagana. They want to serve the literary community through publication, readings, workshops, and to bring the written word to life in as many ways as possible.
RHR publishes two digital issues a year (in February and August) online along with two contest issues and a supplemental issue featuring poems of socio-political nature. Speaking of the contest issue, the River Heron Poetry Prize is currently open to submissions through May 31. The Winner receives $500 and publication. This year’s final judge is Thomas McGuire who won the 2022 prize.
RHR also offers affordable Zoom workshops. Upcoming workshops include the Telling the Story – Poetry Critique with editor Robbin Farr, Poetry Boost – From Title to Publication, Found Forms – Writing Scavenged Poems, In Conversation with Art – Writing an Ekphrastic Response, and others.
