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 Yellow Chair Review

The staff at Yellow Chair Review wants work that seizes life. Work that is deep down in your guts. Work that makes you churn and makes you ache. Work that makes you know that you're alive. Send us this work. We are a non-paying market (we're volunteers and we don't make anything either) but we are committed to promoting and getting our contributors words out to the world. Words are powerful and we want to see you use them.
