Publisher's Description: The Louisville Review, sponsored by the brief-residency MFA in Writing Program at Spalding University, was founded in 1976 at the University of Louisville by faculty editor Sena Jeter Naslund and two students. Known for excellence nationwide and abroad, The Louisville Review has recently published such well-known writers as David Ray, David Brendan Hopes, Frank X Walker, Jhumpa Lahiri, Greg Pape, Debra Kang Dean, Jeanie Thompson, Robin Lippincott, Garrett Hongo, Peter Cooley, Tony Hoagland, and Michael Burkhard. From its founding, TLR has fostered the development of new writers; a poem TLR published twenty years ago by Alberto Riós now appears in standard literature textbooks. TLR published the work of Louise Erdrich while she was still a student at Johns Hopkins.
The goal of the magazine continues to be to import the best writing to local readers, to juxtapose the work of established writers with new writers, and to export the best local writers to a national readership. Each poem and story submitted to TLR is judged entirely on its own merit whether the author is already nationally known or previously unpublished.
