I have become the managing editor of the Southern Literary Review. Writer and editor Phil Jason will serve as editor and publisher of the journal. Former editors Julie Cantrell and Adele Annesi have stepped down after a successful tenure. They increased readership and brought on new contributors, including Sean Ennis, Kerry Madden, Matthew Simmons, Donna Meredith, Christopher Bundrick, Peter Schmitt, Paul Yarbrough, Rhett DeVane, Danielle Sellers, Abigail Greenbaum, Patricia O’Sullivan, Peggy Kassees, Heather Cousins, Niles Reddick, and Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum.
Founded in 2009, the Southern Literary Review celebrates southern authors and their contributions to American literature in general and Southern literature in particular. We feature the classic writers who have defined Southern literature, and we highlight emerging authors through interviews, profiles, and book reviews. Please check out the journal by clicking here. The journal will undergo updates and upgrades in the coming weeks.
