Long River Review 2021

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 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.

Who We Are

We’ll be the ones posting on the LRR Blog, reviewing and selecting submissions that are sent to us, and getting all the behind-the-scenes work done so you can enjoy the 2020 edition of the Long River Review (well, with a bit of help from the Design Center. You can read more about them on the “Design Center” page under the “About” section).

Wondering who the Editor-in-Chief is? Or who’s the one putting all the blogs up? Curious about how many jobs there could actually be in crafting a literary magazine? Well, you can also learn more about our staff and all of our jobs here by heading to the “Meet The Staff” page under the “About” tab.
