Why, aren’t you a crafty bunch?

Jan 17 2011 Published by Barely South Review under Content Announcements,Site News

Welcome, you street-smart, word-wily masterminds–BSR’s timely craft issue is here. Way back in October, we had the good fortune to make the acquaintance of the readers for the 33rd annual ODU Literary Festival; not only did we have the good sense to sit down, shut up and silence our cell phones, but we also talked our way into a real coup–craft interviews with almost all of the authors who came in for the event. While we were at first inclined to spirit this treasure-trove off to our very-own deserted island, we’ve instead decided to share it with the lot of you. So go on, quit wasting time–hit up the craft-interview bonanza (plus poems, stories and excerpts from the visiting writers!)

P.S. Those of you with submissions in, now that our third issue is in the bag, we’ll be turning our attention towards pending notifications.

Mosey on over for more proof that our editorial stable, if you will, isn’t just full of one-trick ponies.

Listen,

Apr 01 2010 Published by Barely South Review under Program News,Site News

We know you’ve been talking amongst yourselves over brunch—asking questions like, “who are these bold renegades of all things prose and verse, and do they know how to arrange themselves by height?” In order to stop the rampant tabloid speculation, I asked everyone this very question just the other day—perhaps you’ll enjoy the answer:

Inaugural Issue

Apr 01 2010 Published by Barely South Review under Content Announcements,Site News

We’re releasing Issue One of Barely South Review today. So what if it’s April 1st—even if our idea of a prank was to release a brand new hulking mass of literary bioluminescence, wouldn’t it be a most beautiful sort of prank? Enjoy, you highly-literate hooligans. Look for more soon from the cantankerous crew at the Barely South Review.

We’re still unpacking, as they say, but have a look around. There’s more on the “about” page, but Barely South Review is produced by the MFA program faculty and students at Old Dominion University. Keep an eye on this space for announcements about events and reading periods. We’ll be announcing a theme-issue reading period soon, along with a few other this that and the others.
