Publisher’s Description: The Gettysburg Review, published by Gettysburg College, is recognized as one of the country’s premier journals. Since its debut in 1988, more than one hundred short stories, poems, and essays first published in its pages have been reprinted in the prize anthologies The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses, The Best American Poetry, The Best American Essays, The Best American Mystery Stories, The Best American Short Stories, Best American Voices, Best New Poets, New Stories from the South, and Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, or have reappeared in such esteemed publications as Harper’s and Utne Reader.

In addition, the Gettysburg Review's editing, elegant design, and stunning graphics have earned numerous prizes, including a Best New Journal award and four Best Journal Design awards from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals, the most recent of which was granted in 2003, and a PEN/Nora Magid Award for Excellence in Editing. Contributors include luminaries such as E. L. Doctorow, Rita Dove, James Tate, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Wilbur, and Donald Hall as well as emerging artists such as JM Holmes, Lydia Conklin, Jessica Hollander, Emily Nemens, Rumaan Alam, Charles Yu, and Ashley Wurzbacher.

With its award-winning editing, writing, and design, the Gettysburg Review is, as one reader put it, “Pure delight, every time.” Published in print and digital (PDF, EPUB, MOBI).
