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 Yay! LA

Our purpose is to expose the good works of literature from both prominent and emerging writers of varied backgrounds, and education. Writers of color are highly encouraged to submit, and while our focus is to promote the work of Los Angeles authors, every so often we will accept a piece from the other side of the tracks. We're open to styles and forms that span the spectrum of your knowledge. We encourage an open heart, head and hand when it comes to a pen and ear. Be creative, be traditional, be yourself - in truth, or fiction.
