    The Chattahoochee Review
    2101 Womack Road
    Dunwoody, Georgia 30338-4497


    The Chattahoochee Review is a literary quarterly sponsored by Georgia Perimeter College and is a part of The Writer's Institute at GPC. Appearing regularly since 1981, it appeals to the educated general public for its readership. Although we enjoy publishing important writers from our own region such as William Gay, George Singleton, and Ron Rash, we also publish new and recognized writers from other regions of the U.S. and other countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Hungary, and England. Work from The Chattahoochee Review is regularly featured in nationally published anthologies and books. It features poetry, fiction, nonfiction, interviews, reviews, and occasional graphic work.

    [imga=left]http://www.gpc.edu/~gpccr/smallcover.jpg[/imga]Method of Selection: The CR is not a refereed or peer review journal (that is, submissions are not sent to outside "qualified readers" for consideration.). Selections are based solely on the choices of the editorial staff, faculty editors, and student editors of The CR. Final responsibility for all selections rests with the chief editor.

    Submissions should be works PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED IN NORTH AMERICA that are typed on one side of each page with the author’s name clearly identified. Please do not send multiple submissions in the same envelope, and please wait for a response before submitting another piece. Also, please INCLUDE AN SASE for return or reply. If you do not include an SASE, your manuscript will be rejected and we will not notify you. Clear photocopies are acceptable. Cover letters are encouraged but not required. Simultaneous submissions should be announced and will be considered but are discouraged. Because of the large amount of other editorial and academic work we handle on e-mail, electronic submissions are not accepted.

    Responses take from one week to six months. As with submissions to any literary magazine, familiarity with our journal will facilitate understanding the kind of writing we want. Beginning with the Fall 2006 volume, Sample copies are available for $9.00 each. Subscription prices will rise from $20.00 to $24.00. Please support literary journals. They exist for you.

    Fiction: The CR publishes high quality literary fiction characterized by interest in language, development of distinctive settings, and delineation of unique characters in conflict. We DO NOT consider such genres as fantasy, historical romance, and science fiction. Fiction should be double spaced with numbered pages and one-inch margins. Please submit only one story per envelope. We consider short fiction up to 6,000 words and will also consider novellas of great merit.

    Poetry: Although we regularly publish the informal personal narratives that dominate North American poetry currently, we are also interested in formal poetry that is topic or theme driven. All verse formats and subjects are considered. Originality and precision of language are important for us. We consider English translations of poetry from other languages, in which case a brief biography of the poet should be included. Poetry should be single-spaced and include three to five poems per submission.

    Nonfiction: We look for distinctive topical essays and personal "creative nonfiction" of any kind. Please keep in mind that our readers are the general public and topical essays should be written for a general audience. We are not an academic journal.

    Interviews: We publish interviews with writers of all kinds: literary, academic, journalistic, and popular. Recent interviews have featured Tony Grooms, Tim Gautreaux, Larry Brown, Claude Wilkinson, Ferreira Gullar, and Kunal Basu. Please query us about your proposal for a particular interview.

    Reviews and review essays: We review selected current offerings in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, including works on photography and the visual arts. Several related works may be reviewed at more length in a review-essay that engages critical issues not appropriate to a single review. We are always in search of new reviewers. Please query us about the possibility of a particular reviews or review-essay, indicating your credentials for the review.

    Visual Arts: By invitation only.
