Founded in 1892, The Sewanee Review is the longest-running literary quarterly in America. The organization has published many of the twentieth century’s great writers, including T. S. Eliot and William Faulkner. From excerpts of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor’s first novels to the early poetry of Robert Penn Warren, Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, and Christian Wiman, The Sewanee Review has a long tradition of cultivating emerging talent.
This is the first time the printed quarterly has ever appeared in a digital space. Riverworks Marketing brought this celebrated content to an online readership in a way that respects print conventions and Sewanee’s storied history, while amplifying their new digital brand. Reader-friendly from any screen size, the distraction-free framework was built to recede from the reader’s conscience as they become absorbed by the content.
While visiting The Sewanee Review, poetry, fiction and non-fiction stories, prose, and craft lectures are shown as excerpts only. With the purchase of an annual subscription, this rich content becomes fully available.
