About

Front Porch Review is an online literary magazine. Its publisher, Glen Phillips of Park Ridge, IL, toiled mightily in the vineyards of educational and IT publishing. After forty years of vainglorious effort, he decided the best he could do for the common good was to build an electronic front porch displaying the significant artistic work of our older generation, men and women coming late to the creativity game but still with something of value to express. His democratic symbol, a front porch, typically a mannered appendage, can also be concrete steps, wooden planks, iron railings, cardboard boxes, even a wool rug at the entrance of a Bedouin's tent. Whatever its form, a front porch is where we, young and old, congregate; where we assemble, gather, mingle, congeal, where we get together. And once we're there we speculate, pontificate, prevaricate, and expostulate; occasionally we speak words of universal truth.

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.
