After sixty years of publishing print editions filled with memorable writing, Washington and Lee’s Shenandoah has gone online, where we will continue to feature work displaying passionate understanding, formal accomplishment and serious mischief.
Our most significant ambition for this site is that it join the journals (web and print) which do not merely “post” poetry and prose but which, through careful stewardship, scrutiny and not a little audacity – as Goethe wrote, “boldness has genius” – keep all the positive connotations of “publish” alive and encourage readers to bring to the screen the same resourcefulness and attention they have brought to our pages for over half a century.Shenandoah
