Roanoke Review was co-founded in 1967 by Roanoke College student Edward A. Tedeschi and teacher Henry Taylor, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in poetry for The Flying Change in 1986.
In its half-century of existence, Roanoke Review has established itself as an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.
The Review is also known for its fine cover art.
Roanoke Review accepts poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, photographic essay, and visual poetry.
September 1 through December 1.
Fiction and non-fiction submissions up to 5,000 words and poetry submissions up to 100 lines.
Roanoke Review is part of the creative writing community at Roanoke College in Virginia.
