Publisher’s description: Founded in 2017 by Garrett Dennert, Orson’s Review is a thoughtful literary journal whose pages are filled with wise yet approachable stories.
We believe writing, reading, and publishing literature does nothing to make you elite, and the writing we publish represents that. Therefore, while we care deeply about quality, we care very little about awards, or about publishing award winners.
We believe strongly in diversity and will continue to be incredibly grateful to have the privilege of showcasing writers of varying backgrounds.
We believe in ambitious stories that are unafraid to go places, be those places light or dark. We believe in ambitious stories that explore their characters and settings with their brains and their hearts.
We publish ambitious stories that must be told.
