Publisher’s Description: The Antioch Review, founded in 1941, is one of the most distinguished and well-established literary journals in America. The magazine publishes fiction, essays, and poetry from both emerging and well-known authors. Review writers are consistently included in Best American anthologies and awarded Pushcart Prizes; its editor, Robert S. Fogarty, received the PEN/American Center lifetime achievement award for editing in 2003.

Most issues combine genres. This mix of materials allows readers to move back and forth within an issue or select an area best suited to their interest. There are also occasional single genre issues. Recent issues have featured essays by Bruce Fleming, Maureen McCoy, Jeffrey Meyers, Patricia Foster; stories by Nathan Oates, Edith Pearlman, and Peter LaSalle, along with award-winning poetry by Richard Howard, Alice Fulton, and Valerie Wohlfeld

The Antioch Review is published quarterly in association with Antioch College. The Review receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ohio Arts Council, and numerous friends around the country.

Recent issues:

The Summer 2014 all fiction issue of the Antioch Review leads off with a short short story by Gordon Lish from his recently published collection Goings: In Thirteen Sittings. Following it is “Leopard” by Sheila Kohler, a one-time student of Lish’s. More stories by some of the Review’s favorite authors include the masterful Rick DeMarinis, the Drue Heinz Prize award winner for 2014 Kent Nelson, and a young writer Karin Lin-Greenberg whose collection of stories won the 2013 Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction. Our poetry section follows and then more stories by a talented group who have appeared in our pages before.

The Spring 2014 issue of the Antioch Review leads off with a bit of family history by Ralph Keyes who reminisces about his life as a “red diaper” baby and is followed by a 1935 memoir by a student who suffered from wanderlust and who took to the sea to see the world. Our fiction begins with a story by Gordon Lish, and includes work by Valerie Leff, a bright young writer, and Scott Ely who died recently. There are many other fine stories, poems, and essays in this issue.

Generations: Yours, Mine, the Next? is the focus of the Antioch Review’s Winter 2014 issue (Volume 72 #1), featuring essays from several writers new to our pages. The fiction is from seasoned veterans of the Review, including Leon Rooke and Rosellen Brown; the poetry, Poetry Today column (on Turkish Love Poetry), and reviews round out the issue.
