About

Rooted in the nation’s capital’s suburbs, Potomac Review is the antidote to the scripted republic that surrounds it. By taking on DC’s values of international inclusion, Potomac Review looks out into the world from its lush Potomac River basin, collecting and absorbing the world’s literary diversity. Potomac Review seeks literature from emerging and established writers around the globe to facilitate in the literary conversation.

Important: Expect slower response times in the summer months.
