The August issue here! We have so much to be thankful for. Our featured poet for August is Cullen Whisenhunt
It pains me to announce that this will probably be the last issue of Red River Review for some time. I started this review in 1999 and ran it for many years alone until 2007. I took a break from editing and publishing until Michelle Hartman came along and breathed new life into the journal. She ran Red River from 2010 until 2018 when she stepped aside. This site deserves much more love and support than I can give it. I would be happy to pass it on to a qualified editor or institution if arrangements could be made. Reach out to me if you wish.
Any submission that is still unpublished at this time, including your video blogs, are released for publication elsewhere. It’s been a great ride but for now, I need to let this rest.
