The Iowa Review

We select most of our content from the several thousand unsolicited manuscripts that arrive each year from throughout the country and abroad. We take our mission to be nudging along American literature, to be local but not provincial, to be experimental but not without love for our literary traditions. Although you may find writers already familiar to you in most of our issues, you will surely find others who are not. Discovering a new and compelling writer, one we'd never heard of before but whose writing comes through to us--that still seems the magic of our work.

The James Franco Review

The James Franco Review is visibility of underrepresented and misrepresented artists. It's also an experiment where we are testing: What happens when writers' work is read through an anonymous submission system? What happens when editors change every two months, when there are no intermediary readers, and everything is chosen by the genre editor? Our hope is that the experiment will result in a diversity of literature and of writers.
