Our Mission

NEXT not NOW 

Founded in 1997, the Long River Review is an annual literary journal of art and literature staffed by undergraduates at the University of Connecticut. Today, Long River Review is dedicated to championing the best work from emerging writers and artists across the globe in our annual print and online journal. We publish what people will want to read next rather than what they are reading now. We publish work that tells the world something it hasn’t heard from writers and artists whose voices are unique, fresh, and inventive. The work in Long River Review processes and re-conceives of the world as we know or imagine it to inspire new thought in every reader.
