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 pieces that move us, and we want to move our readers as well. In a troubling and stagnant year, we hope the work enclosed in this journal offers readers something fresh and dynamic — something to help them ride out the storm, however long it may last.
