riverSedge A Journal of Art and Literature 8

About

riverSedge is a literary journal of culture and literature with an understanding of its place in the nation. Its name reflects our specific river edge with an openness to publish writers who use English, Tex-Mex, and Spanish and who discuss border life while not excluding voices from other areas. The “river’s edge” means many things: the edge of the Americas, divided by the Rio Grande, as well as the cutting edge of creativity in language and genre. riverSedge exists to provide an outlet for writers of excellence in the genres of creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, scriptwriting, visual art, and critical reviews. riverSedge is published by the English Department and MFA Program from the University of Texas Pan American.

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
