  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 30 Number 1, Spring 2018

Is There a Word for That? On hearing the current theme, an astute college student's answer was “Probably.” He was right. You would be surprised what unusual words pop up in this issue, from a secret language between twins, in “The Rockbury Twins,” by Karen Loeb, to V.J. Hamilton’s “There’s Gotta Be a Word for That,” which leaves you wondering what that word might be. For the autistic boy in Dean Scelec’s “Sullivan’s Word,” the word is special indeed. Jessica Temple invites the reader to consider dépaysement in her poem by the same title.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 14 Number 2, March/April 2018 online

Welcome to Volume 14 Issue Number 2 of, the online magazine of arts, information, and entertainment. We're heavy this month on education articles that go from up close and personal in the classroom, to the effects of consolidation on communities that held dear their local district schools, to what happens when a teen gets pregnant and drops out of school, to what turns prospective teachers away from following through on their college curriculum. Of course, there's much more, from politics to poetry, humor to interviews, fiction to memoir.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 8 Number 1, Spring 2018

Bernard Fergusson’s opening lines to kick off this issue hold true for many of us personally. Though, unlike the speaker of “self-portrait with nostalgia,” who claims, “I was born once and it’s been downhill ever since,” Raleigh Review has been getting better with every issue. That said—Raleigh Review is still a work-in-progress. What kind of work? Well, we’ve bussed tables together at the Waffle House, we’ve seined in the Alaskan Gulf and shrimped in the Biloxi Back Bay. All this is just to say that we are working people, after all, who continue to make this magazine happen.
