This was my review of the Country & City Issue of Ecotone, which really spoke to the love of nature and country in me.
This is my review of The Hollins Critic which picks a contemporary writer (this issue was Helen Simonson) and provides a survey of their work, as well as book reviews and poetry.
This is my review of the March/April 2017 issue of World Literature Today, which focused heavily on Dystopian Vision stories and shared many interesting works from around the world, including a special section on Montenegrin Literature.
This is my review of the Western American Literature, Fall 2016 issue, which contains many interesting essays and reviews about American Western Literature.
This is my review of Thrice Fiction’s December 2016 issue, which is filled with truly unique and creative “short fiction” and artwork.
This is my review for the Autumn 2016 issue of The Hudson Review, which focused on American literature and culture.
This is my review of the Nimrod International Spring/Summer 2017, which was themed “Leaving Home, Finding Home.” This was a great collection of poems and short stories that centered around the concept of “home” and where to find home.
This is my review of the Nano Fiction, Fall 2016 edition, which was the final issue of this publication. This was a great issue with many interesting small fiction pieces – even one that looked like a curriculum vitae. I am sorry to see this publication end its long run, but at least there is now a place for nano fiction in other publications.
I loved this publication so much! My Review of this publication also received a very nice note from the magazine editor.
Susan Brumesiter-Brown, one of the editors of Glimmer Train: “Oh, Katy, this reviewer really understands Glimmer Train. Gabe Herron’s story may have brought tears to her eyes, but her review did the same with me. Please pass along my gratitude.”
I look forward to seeing more of these magazines in the future!
My second review of 2017 was of Epoch, a publication from Cornell University. It contains short stories, poems, and a beautiful story detailing the life of a family friend during the 60s.
