Founded at the University of Georgia in 1947 and published there ever since, The Georgia Review has become one of America’s most highly regarded journals of arts and letters. Each quarterly issue offers a diverse, thoughtfully orchestrated gathering of short stories, general-interest essays, poems, reviews, and visual art.
Never stuffy and never shallow, The Georgia Review seeks a broad audience of intellectually open and curious readers—and strives to give those readers rich content that invites and sustains repeated attention and consideration. The physical journal is made to last, expertly printed on fine paper and perfect bound for durability and ease of shelving in one’s library, and the content is made to last as well: over the years, many subscribers have told us that The Georgia Review’s offerings prompt them not only to read every issue cover to cover but also to return to those issues and to share them with friends and colleagues.
Pulitzer Prize winners and never-before-published writers are equals during our manuscript evaluation process, whose goal is to identify and print stories, poems, and essays that promise to be, in the famous words of Ezra Pound, “news that stays news.”
“The Georgia Review is the only magazine I read from cover to cover. In other publications I usually find several things I really like; in The Georgia Review I love nearly everything.”
