Our Mission

Founded in 1997, the Long River Review is an annual literary journal of art and literature staffed by undergraduates at the University of Connecticut. With a regular staff turnover, we gain fresh perspectives each year. We think it’s better this way. Here at the Long River Review, we want to publish all kinds of voices: voices from the mouth of the river and beyond, voices drowned out by other voices, voices that might not have otherwise been heard. At Long River, we want to create a space where new and established artists can mingle and share a glass of water or wine (or whiskey). We believe that the unpublished artist deserves as much time and consideration as the artist with a foothold. For here at Long River, we believe that we are standing here, all souls bent over, harvesting the words and images on the current, all knee to neck deep in the same, long river.
