Journal The Zodiac Review

The Zodiac Review was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of "literary/genre" fiction -- the merger of literary fiction and (nearly) any genre that joins it. Here new and emerging writers will find a writing studio of sorts as well as a receptive venue for publication. Editors provide free, personal feedback for all submissions. We also facilitate reader/writer communications, and expect to submit Pushcart nominations.
