Soundings Review, a magazine of creative writing, debuted in September 2008. It publishes poetry, fiction and prose, including essays and interviews. Open to different styles and voices, Soundings Review is passionate about accessibility and depth, stories that make an impression on the first read, and with subsequent readings continue to elicit thought and understanding.
We welcome well written and engaging submissions from emerging and established writers. Please see our Submission Guidelines and consider making a submission. We also offer three contests with opportunities for publication and cash prizes.
Magazines survive by creating a community of readers. If you’re not a subscriber, please consider subscribing. The more readers we have, the greater circulation our writers enjoy.
We wish to express our deep gratitude to Founding Editor Marian Blue and Founding Associate Editor Candace Allen who have moved on to other endeavors and whose untiring efforts created, raised funds for, and edited Soundings Review. At their suggestion, beginning with the Fall/Winter 2012 issue, Soundings Review moves to another part of NILA, the MFA program where it will eventually become part of the proposed MFA in Publishing and Editing track.
