About R&S

River & South Review is a student-run literary journal. We seek new work by emerging writers of any age who have not gone on to a graduate writing degree. This may include undergraduates, writers without a formal education, and writers from other professions.  

River & South Review is published twice annually with a Summer (May) and Winter (December) issue. 

While we have no official affiliation with the university, the editorial team is derived of current students from the Wilkes University M.A./M.F.A. programs who have an interest in discovering and showcasing new literary voices.
