to fine poetry, short fiction, and literary essays

Good Works Review (GWR) is a reincarnation of our now-defunct Kentucky Review but with more; that is, more genres of writing. Because the magazine’s parent press and its major board members relocated from Lexington, Kentucky to Athens, Georgia, it seemed appropriate to rebrand and consider what we wanted the new magazine to offer.

The deadline for submissions to our third issue is October 15, 2019, but we read year round (see guidelines) for poetry, short fiction, literary essays, and black-and-white artwork. We will not publish online but in an annual printed issue along with a Kindle e-book version, usually in December of each year. Like Kentucky Review, this new publication is part of FutureCycle Press’s Good Works Projects. All proceeds from sales of GWR are donated to the ACLU. We’d love to hear from you, either as a writer or reader. You may contact us anytime via email to goodworksreview@futurecycle.org (but don’t send submissions to this address). We always look forward to reading your work.

Coming Soon!

We plan in the near future to offer videos of our contributors reading from their work published in Good Works Review (any issue). We likely won't publish videos of all contributors, only those who wish to participate. Please see the submission guidelines for information on how to submit your media.
