What RBR Publishes

Reedy Branch Review strives to publish high quality, original poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction written in English. Work less commonly found in literary journals, such as graphic narrative, short plays, and experimental writing is also considered for publication. A limited amount of artwork is included in each issue, gracing the cover and appearing between pieces within the journal.
