New Hampshire Review


The New Hampshire Review is a new quarterly journal of poetry and politics founded by Virginia M. Heatter and Seth D. Abramson in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Although our state boasts such luminaries as Robert Frost, Edward Arlington Robinson, Donald Hall, Jane Kenyon, Charles Simic, and Maxine Kumin, we currently lack a high-profile literary review. By combining our experiences as writers and editors, we hope to present an outstanding quarterly journal to readers both here in the U.S. and abroad.

In each issue, we plan to feature established writers alongside those of exceptional talent who are less well-known. We also plan to feature timely political essays, which will offer a progressive view of the issues and events which shape our times. Finally, we will take advantage of our format to showcase the work of extraordinary practitioners of the visual arts.

As editors we are readers first. Our aim is not to advance any one theory or poetic school, but to present remarkable poems which will interest and affect a diverse audience. As poets whose personal aesthetics diverge as often as they intersect, we feel uniquely suited to the task of selecting such a broad range of work.

Though we are launching The New Hampshire Review as an online publication, we will be working hard to secure the funds necessary to take the journal into print within two years. We are deeply committed to this project's success. It is a life's work, and we look forward to both its joys and challenges with great anticipation.
