Senior Editors Barbara Westwood Diehl and Kathleen Hellen are directing The Baltimore Review on a new venture with an online quarterly publication and print annual.
The Baltimore Review was founded by Barbara Westwood Diehl in 1996 as a literary journal publishing short stories and poems, with a mission to showcase the best writing from the Baltimore area and beyond. Their mission remains just that. "However," Diehl writes, "in our new online format, we can now bring that fine writing to the world's attention, more frequently, and at less cost. We can also explore new ways to bring the world of writers and writing to the reader's attention. This doesn't mean that we've fallen out of love with the printed book. Work accepted for online publication will also be collected for annual print issues."
Readers of The Baltimore Review can expect to find fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, and poems from established and emerging writers - "work we hope will take readers into unfamiliar worlds or deeper into familiar ones, work that knocks the walls down," Diehl says.
The first online issue includes: Poems by Edgar Silex, Al Maginnes, Dorianne Laux, W. Todd Kaneko, Paul Hostovsky, Tim Kahl, John Walser, Angela Torres, Ned Balbo, and David Dodd Lee; Fiction by Devin Murphy, Christopher Lowe, Josh Green, Gregory Wolos, Catherine Thomas, Peter Kispert, Nathan Gower, Ryan Millberg, Ajay Vishwanathan, Catherine Parnell, Jen Murvin Edwards, and Emily Roller; Creative Nonfiction by Heather Martin, Stephen J. West, Colin Rafferty, Bram Takefman, Michelle Valois, Lockie Hunter, and Seth Sawyers.
The Baltimore Review hopes to continue forward with quarterly online and annual print issues, always seeking new ways to engage their readers.
