Black Warrior Review
From the Editor
Since 1974, Black Warrior Review has published the freshest voices in literature, from established and emerging talents alike. Each issue presents high quality poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including a chapbook by a nationally recognized poet. In addition, we’ve added comics and full-color art inserts to our repertoire. Black Warrior Review counts among its contributors Pulitzer Prize Winners, National Book Award Winners, and Poet Laureates. Stories and poems from BWR have been reprinted in Puschart Prize series, Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, New! Stories from the South, and other anthologies. In our 35 year history, we’ve published work by John Ashbery, Rita Dove, Marvin Bell, Annie Dillard, Charles Simic, James Tate, and Andre Dubus. Recent contributors include Mary Jo Bang, Steve Davenport, Brian Evenson, Terrance Hayes, Dinty W. Moore, D.A. Powell, Tomaz Salamun, Steve Tomasula, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, and Joy Williams.
We look to publish fresh, exciting work of any kind. Black Warrior Review reads general fiction, nonfiction, and poetry submissions from December 1 – March 1 and June 1 – September 1.
