Editorial Focus

Lake Effect seeks to publish literary fiction and nonfiction and poetry of the highest quality by established and new and emerging writers from across the country and, in translation, from around the world, and to give that work an attractive venue.  Appearances of our work in The Best American Short Stories, Best American Essays, and Pushcart Prize anthologies attests to our success in finding some of the best work in the country to publish.

Tips From the Editor

Not interested in genre writing, unless the work challenges the assumptions of said genre.
