Publisher’s description: The Georgetown Review is published in Kentucky, a state famous for thoroughbreds and bourbon whiskey—but our magazine is much more fun than betting on a horse because ‘it has a cool name,' so read us instead.

We’ve published stories by PEN/Faulkner Award nominee Frederick Barthelme, National Book Award finalist Stephen Dixon, Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction winner Andrew Plattner. We’ve published poems by Fred Chappell, David Citino, Denise Duhamel, David Allan Evans, Mark Halperin, James Harms, X.J. Kennedy, and David Romtvedt. However, in addition to all this well-known talent, we’ve also given many writers their first publication.

Our magazine is a collaboration between English faculty at Georgetown College and undergrads who learn the editing business as they go and who always amaze their elders with their dedication and first-rate work. So support youth. Read the Georgetown Review.
