Welcome, Amy

Hey everyone! We want to welcome our new FLR editor, Amy Bayne. You can read more about her here.
Amy will be gathering a group of guest editors to read through submissions and choose selected pieces for our literary magazine. We are thrilled Amy has joined us. (She encouraged us to start accepting visual arts, so you can thank her for that! A great idea, we think.)


Our summer issue is complete! I know, it’s not really summer (even though we did hit 79 yesterday). Please take a moment to read new work by Mark Jackley, Tuwond Bernard, Eugene GoldinRochelle Cartier, Lawrence Lenhart, and Nathaniel Lee Hansen. We had such solid submissions this period, and we are honored to publish these writers in the Fredericksburg Literary Review.

More Summer Writing

We are approaching the end of our summer issue, and the weather remains “summer hot” here in Virginia. Please take a moment to read a cursory inspection by Christopher Mulrooney and Damaged Thinker #20 by Darren C. Demaree. Also, in the fiction section, we’ve published Predators in the Bush by Frank Frank Scozzari.

Writers, thanks for supporting FLR. Readers, now it’s up to you to support them. Read and enjoy!
