Barely South Review is looking for literary fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art that moves us. We keep an eye out for works that reinterpret and energize perspectives on or notions of space and borders—be they rigid,
precarious, liminal, transcendent, transgressive, provocative, or porous.
Our Fall reading period runs from September 1st until November 30th. For more details, please visit our website.
About BSR: The students and faculty of Old Dominion University’s MFA program in Creative Writing form a lively and supportive community of writers in beautiful southeastern Virginia. The Tidewater region’s story is shaped by its history and its diversity—by its dynamic fusion of old and new. There is great complexity in any form or creative assertion of “here,” and it is in this spirit that BSR embraces the opportunity to feature works from emerging as well as established writers. We are interested in great writing in its myriad forms. We seek to present many voices, especially those that defy easy regional, thematic, and stylistic categorization.
