Journal Yalobusha Review

Yalobusha Review is a journal of new writing, founded in 1995 and operated by the graduate writing program at the University of Mississippi. We seek to showcase work that alters or subverts mainstream forms of expression–work that is, in a broad sense, experimental, though that takes many forms. We believe the reading experience should be a kinetic one, and to that end, we favor art that has its own source of energy, drawn from tonal individuality, linguistic texture, and above all, a sense of exploration.

Journal Young Ravens Literary Review

Young Ravens Literary Review is a biannual online literary journal. We accept material from both new and established writers and artists. We want to know what haunts, inspires, maddens, and exalts you on our common journey through existence. Give us your kaleidoscope musings on splendiferous ephemera, fantasy, and the sacred mundane! We are the hungry ones who cast our souls to the edge of the universe in our never-ending migration for creative nourishment. Our name is inspired by Psalm 147:9: “He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.”
