Please note that TLR is currently not open for submissions or subscriptions.
The Literary Review (TLR) publishes the best new fiction, poetry, and prose from a broad community of international writers and translators, both emerging and established, whose commonality is literary quality and an urgency of voice and artistic conviction. Our editorial standard is to read with an open, discerning mind, and to publish carefully and vigorously. This genuine community of readers, writers, and publishers is what distinguishes us and defines how we connect our writers to readers and to each other.
TLR has been published since 1957 by Fairleigh Dickinson University. In 2020 and 2021 TLR is published digitally. The latest issue is Turning Points and Revolution.
TLR Share is a curated section of our website dedicated to the reinforcement of our literary community. Through regular features of stories, poems, or lyric prose published in other small magazines, the TLR Share Editors endeavor to extend the life and reach of individual literary publications, by republishing selected works in full.
