Publisher's description: Valley Voices: A Literary Review is located in the heartland of the Mississippi Delta. It is dedicated to readers and writers with a purpose to promote works of the writers from the Delta and other regions and foster appreciation of the literary diversity of our multicultural society in the Mississippi Delta and other parts of the world.
Some special issues featuring The Mississippi Writers, Poetic Translation in a Global Context, The Richard Wright Centennial, Sterling Plumpp, Tennessee Williams, and New York School and Diaspora are guest-edited by well-known scholars such as Philip Kolin, Christopher Maurer, Hermine Pinson, Duriel Harris, Angela Ball, and David Lehman. Valley Voices also runs an occasional campus issue to promote works of the college students.
Though we hope to see more creative work about the South, Valley Voices features fiction, poetry, interviews, and criticism from writers and scholars anywhere. Authors we have published include Angela Ball, Billy Collins, Denise Duhamel, Ted Haddin, Barbara Hamby, Tayari Jones, David Kirby, David Lehman, Lenard D. Moore, Ron Padgett, Linda Pastan, Sterling Plump, Larry Sams, Sue Walker, and Jerry Ward. Titles appear in MLA International Bibliography and EBSCOHost.
