Publisher’s Description: Water~Stone Review is a literary annual published by the Graduate School of Liberal Studies at Hamline University. It promises the excitement of trend-setting work and the artistic excellence of a proud Midwestern literary tradition. The review is geared to the curious reader who prefers a range of styles and voices, intelligent and lively discourse, and strong, original writing. Water~Stone Review publishes work in all genres (from both emerging and well-known writers), essay/reviews, and writers’ interviews. Work from the review has been included in Best American Poetry, Best Nonrequired Reading, The Pushcart Prize, and other anthologies.

Water~Stone Review is one of those rare journals that fires on all cylinders: careful editing, gorgeous layout and design, an aesthetic triumph on every level.” Robert Vivian, Author

Water~Stone Review has the freshness and verve of the very best literary reviews. You get the feeling, turning the pages, that its harvesting of good writing is intelligently planned and rigorously put together.” Eavan Boland, Author
