The Literary Review

Fiction, poetry, essays, reviews & translations

"The Literary Review (TLR) is a quarterly of new writing from around the world that has been publishing out of Fairleigh Dickinson University since 1957. That makes it one of the oldest continually publishing literary magazines in the country. We pride ourselves on publishing stories, essays, and poems by new writers, making discoveries rather than chasing known quantities. The journal’s mission is simply to share writing we love with readers who love to read. The work we publish has the courage of its convictions—it is bold, unusual, risk-taking, and emotionally honest."
