New Lit on the Block :: Newport Review

Newport Review is an independent journal of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and visual art. The magazine was founded by award-winning poet and writer Michele Cooper. Newport Review began publication in Newport, Rhode Island in the 1980s, and published as a print journal through the 1990s, most often annually. Guest editors included Stuart Blazer and Susan Grant. In their web manifestation, they hope to continue publishing innovative, language-rich flash fiction, prose poetry and poetry, as well as longer works: short stories, novel excerpts, one-act plays and creative nonfiction. Without the limitations or expenses of print reproduction, they will also welcome more visual artwork: both black & white and color photography, graphic stories (or “comix,” if you prefer) and original artwork. Check out their premier issue online now: Newport Review, Autumn Harvest 2007.

Thanks for the mention of Newport Review! We're in the process of reading for our Spring 2008 issue right now and have just chosen the winners of last year's flash fiction contest. We'll be accepting entries for the 2008 contest starting June 1st.
