Delmarva Review is a literary journal dedicated to the discovery of outstanding new fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. We publish annually to inspire readers and writers to pursue excellence in writing.

The 10th Anniversary edition presents new poetry and prose from 40 authors in 18 states. The editor for this edition Emily Rich describes the content as “touching on the themes of change and hope, among other topics. Amidst the uncertainties of life, people grasp for what is eternal in the human condition.” In addition, we are pleased to publish the first place winner of the 2017 Chesapeake Voices Prose Contest in this issue.

The Review welcomes short fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction submissions, in English, from all authors. We encourage outstanding story-telling and moving poetry. Our standards are for memorable prose and poetry exhibiting skillful expression. Please consult the Submission Guide for all submissions. We also seek illustrative work in the form of photography or other art to be considered for the cover and inside pages.

The submission period for Volume 11 (2018 edition) is open from November 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. Please see the Submission Guideline page.

Volume 10 of the Review is available in print and electronic editions worldwide from and other major online booksellers as well as regional libraries and bookstores on the Delmarva Peninsula.

The nonprofit Delmarva Review is published by the Delmarva Review Literary Fund to support the literary arts. Publication is funded by individual contributions and a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council.
