New England Review Goes Digital with Publication of Current Issue

May 11, 2015

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – The new issue of New England Review–the first available in print and digital formats for all devices–offers 16 poems by contemporary poets both new and renowned, fiction by six writers who are new to the pages of NER, and a range of essays and translations.

Appearing for the first time in the literary quarterly is work by writers Mario J. Gonzales, Brendan McKennedy, Carolyn Page, J. T. Price, Lore Segal, and Lisa Taddeo. They bring stories from the poorest to the most privileged corners of life in the city, and share tales of the power of music and the power of words, of memories planted along a dusty road, and of a world too watery for anything but the ark of Noah himself.

The new issue also coincides with the selection of three NER pieces in three separate genres for this year’s Best American series, published by Mariner Books. Laura Lee Smith’s story, “Unsafe at Any Speed” will appear in Best American Short Stories 2015; Steven Heighton’s “Shared Room on Union” was chosen for Best American Mystery Stories 2015; and Kate Lebo’s piece, “The Loudproof Room,” which was performed in NER Out Loud, was chosen for the 2015 edition of Best American Essays.

Published by Middlebury College, New England Review is a nationally recognized literary journal that cultivates artistic excellence and innovation in contemporary writing and engages readers deeply in the literary arts through its quarterly publication, dynamic web presence, and quarterly public reading series.
