The Kenyon Review vs. KROnline

Editor David H. Lynn, in the current issue of The Kenyon Review, says that there has been some confusion about the different formats now available for The Kenyon Review. The digital age is making more opportunities for more literature to be available. At one point, Lynn said that they had to decline some submissions that they wanted to publish. This is one main reason that they started looking down other avenues.

Kindle Version: The Kenyon Review is available through Amazon as a Kindle version. This is essentially a replica of the traditional print version of the journal. It is available for only 99 cents a month.

KROnline: This version is completely free at kenyonreview.org and offers fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and book reviews not found in print or in the Kindle version. Because it is faster to publish on the web, some of these contributions are more timely. Lynn explains, "Pieces may also be shorter, more experimental—more 'out there.'"
