Red River Review
started in 1999 as an experiment in web publishing. In internet years, it was the 1950's compared to today. At the time, poetry on the web was mostly self-published or non-juried sites where anyone could post their poetry and consider it published. My aim was to prove that a juried literary journal could publish on a consistent schedule and maintain a respectable level of literary merit.
Thirty-four issues were published between 1999 and 2007. On average nearly 600 poems were submitted each quarter. And each year we nominated poets for the Pushcart Prize.
By the time I ceased publication in 2007, there were a multitude of journals publishing on the web. The respectability and acceptance of web publishing had grown and I'm proud that Red River was a part of that.
In 2010 my friend and fellow poet, Michelle Hartman convinced me to bring back Red River Review. She is a skilled editor and my role is now focused solely on the technology and publishing aspects of the project.
Statement of Purpose
Our purpose has always been to publish well-crafted poetry using the best electronic means available. Our highest priority is the quality of writing. We will also post companion media pieces such as artwork, video the published poem being read by the author and other mixed media items that the editors agree are relevant. Again, our highest priority is the written word. Everything else is secondary.
