Choices come with the weight of decision and responsibility, never to be taken lightly. That is what we feel as editors of The Delmarva Review. It’s decision time.
While our literary journal is young, at seven years, submissions are beyond expectations. Over 1,000 writers submitted poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction for the coming issue.
We created the Review as a new publishing opportunity for literary work in print, offering writers permanence and readership beyond borders. Standards are high as we welcome all authors. Our goals are to select writing that inspires and encourages writers to create their finest work. Literary writing is often considered the far end of the writing spectrum, reserved for the most skillfully created prose and poetry. Through the journey comes discovery, giving significance to the pursuit. . .for literature and for the writer.
As editors, we will do our best to make thoughtful decisions, knowing we can only publish a sample of the work submitted.
Editors will finalize selections over the next few weeks and contact the authors. Publication of Volume 7 is October 2014. On behalf of the publisher, the Eastern Shore Writers Association, we thank all the authors who have considered The Delmarva Review for publication.
This is a privilege. We do not take it lightly.
The Delmarva Review is published annually in print. A downloadable digital edition is available at Amazon.com. Website: www.delmarvareview.com.
