The Gila River Review

Hey gang!

Not gonna lie, I felt like Freddy from Scooby Doo in that moment.

Anyway, I decided that since it’s my last semester at Chandler-Gilbert Community College that instead of submitting to the campus’s online Literary Journal, I’d be a member of the editorial staff!

Our first meeting was Friday, and we have a big group! I’m really excited because I love critical and analytical reading, and essentially I’m sort of an Editor, which is my dream job! Plus, being an active member of the Review looks great on a resume and in my portfolio that I plan to send to potential Universities.

Anyway, I wanted to spread the word about the Review. It is student run and is intended for an adult audience. The Review accepts Visual Art, Micro-Fiction (fewer than 1,000 words), Short Non-Fiction, and Short Fiction, as well as poetry. Being that the Review is a purely online experience we are also able to accept Audio Files, be it original music or spoken word.

Here’s more info if you’re interested, I’m looking forward to reading submissions!
