Editorial Focus

We publish 3-6 featured pieces every two weeks--focusing primarily on poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction.

Our digital gallery publishes photo essays, visual poetry, and artists from southwestern Virginia.

On occasion, we invite authors published with Roanoke Review to contribute podcast readings and interviews.

Tips From the Editor

Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Love what you send us. We hope we will, too.
