The Dead River Review is an online literary magazine that seeks to offer Middlesex Community College a venue where students and faculty can develop their craft as readers, writers, and editors of literature as well as gain professional editorial experience and publishing credentials. We are seeking to introduce unfamiliar styles of writing to capture the essence of humanity through contemporary submissions of literature; as such, new forms of thought and expression will always be welcomed by the editorial committee. The Dead River Review is an outlet seeking professional literary standards and new styles of writing that show love and dedication to the craft. Our zine Middleground encompasses a more open and informal submission process in contrast to The Dead River Review’s more professional approach. We seek to provide a platform where writers showcase their creative pursuits. In no way will the line be blurred between creative expression and hateful agendas. Social commentary and critique is welcome and encouraged, but any feelings expressed through art that target individuals or groups should be left separate from Dead River Review. If there is any gray area within these restrictions, please feel free to contact any member of The Dead River Review Committee. Through this restriction we do not aim to silence, but instead insure that others are not silenced through creative expression. We are seeking film shorts, music demos, short stories, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry however you are not limited to these contemporary forms. Pen names are welcomed but not required. Faculty members are encouraged to submit. Our committee is committed to your contributions, and your submissions will be reviewed in earnest.
To submit, or if you have questions, please email our committee firstname.lastname@example.org.
