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. Between issues, it regularly features book reviews, interviews, essays on the practice of writing, and other important literary news.

Tips From the Editor

Good River Review is a home for writing that launches quickly, speaks to the universal through the particular, and is layered with meaning. We also love work that doesn’t fit neatly into genre categories. Our editors are attracted to writing that blurs boundaries, and so contributors will find their work published under the headings of prose, lyric, and drama. In addition, we will publish the most compelling writing for children and young adults that we can find.
