The Delmarva Review is a literary journal publishing original short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and short reviews.  Compelling writing, in English, from all authors will be considered. The Review selects literary work from the region and beyond.

We encourage great story-telling and moving poetry. Our standards are for memorable prose and poetry exhibiting skillful expression. If you are new to the writing scene, we hope to discover you. If you are an established author, we welcome your best unpublished work.

We also seek illustrative work in the form of photography or other art to be considered for the cover. 

Volume 7 of the Review, to be published in October 2014, will be available in both print and electronic editions at all major online booksellers (,, Apple iTunes, etc), as well as regional libraries and bookstores. Two-year subscriptions are $20 postpaid. For subscriptions and quantity orders, please see the Orders page. 

The Delmarva Review is published by the Eastern Shore Writers Association (ESWA), a nonprofit organization of writers across the tristate region of the Delmarva Peninsula, including portions of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. 

Publication of the seventh issue of The Delmarva Review is funded by private contributions and sales.
