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.
