Publisher’s Description: For over 30 years, Indiana Review has been bringing you some of the best new writing around by both established and emerging writers from all over the globe.

The work on our pages is eclectic and daring in language and formal aesthetic, and sometimes in the daring to speak at all. Each issue brings you fiction, nonfiction, and poems of consequence that resonate beyond the page and reveal unexpected worlds.

As a biannual, student-run literary review, Indiana Review considers previously unpublished poetry, fiction, essays, graphic arts, interviews, and translations. Our mission is to offer the highest quality writing within a wide aesthetic.

Works by contributors to IR have been awarded the Pushcart Prize and reprinted in The Pushcart Prize Anthology: Best of the Small Presses, as well as in the O. Henry Awards, Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, and Best New American Voices. In addition, Indiana Review is recognized as one of the top 50 fiction markets by Writer’s Digest and in 1996 was selected as the first place winner of the American Literary Magazine Award.
