Welcome to the Southern Women's Review.

This on-line literary journal was inspired by (but not affiliated with) the biennial Berry College Southern Women Writer's Conference - a conference whose theme we share: "showcasing the works of well known and emerging southern women writers, expanding the literary canon, and developing critical and theoretical understandings of traditions and innovations in southern women's writing."

Whether you are a born and bred Southerner, a Southern transplant, or merely a frequent visitor, we welcome you to submit your poetry/prose, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoirs, and photography. Submissions should be from women who were born in or grew up in the U.S. South; currently live in the U.S. South; or write about the U.S. South. For editorial purposes, we consider the U.S. South to be a region comprised of the following areas: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Maryland, Washington DC, and West Virginia.
