The Northwest Review is a prestigious literary journal with a rich history. First published by the University of Oregon in 1957, it was the first magazine to publish Ken Kesey, George Saunders, and countless other novelists, story writers, poets, and nonfiction writers. In 2020 it was reestablished as an independent journal under the editorship of S. Tremaine Nelson, an alum of Vanderbilt and of the Columbia University MFA programs, and a veteran of The Paris Review and The New Yorker. The magazine now publishes three times a year in print, and online all year round. Its work has made it into Best American Short Stories and Best American Poetry, and its contributors are among the best emerging and established writers at work today. Under our new partnership, the Sewanee School of Letters will supply NWR with volunteers to serve as first readers of submissions to the journal. These positions are remote and have a limited term of service. Our students will get real-world publishing experience, regular contact with senior staff at the journal, and be credited as associate editors for the issue on which they worked. Our inaugural class of NWR associate editors are Leslie Hinson (fiction), Max Putnam (poetry), and Lana Sain (poetry). We encourage you to check them out on the NWR masthead, congratulate them if you talk to them, and subscribe to the Northwest Review.
