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. 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 want to publish work that electrifies; work that moves us; work that breaks and makes the world feel whole. Here at the Long River Review, we want to publish new voices: voices from the mouth of the river and beyond, voices drowned out by other voices, voices that might not have otherwise been heard. We publish work that is bold, unique, inventive, and most importantly, in your voice.
