Editorial Focus

Good River Review is the literary journal of the Sena Jeter Naslund-Karen Mann Graduate School of Writing at Spalding University. It publishes two issues a year. Good River Review is a home for writing that launches quickly, speaks to the universal through the particular, and is layered with meaning. They also love work that doesn’t fit neatly into genre categories.
