Letter from the Editors
Dear valued Los Angeles Review readers, contributors, and supporters,
The editors of the Los Angeles Review are excited to announce the launch of a free weekly online journal accompanied by a purchasable best-of annual print edition. The new format is scheduled to launch on June 1, 2017 and will provide our contributors the exposure they deserve, as a growing number of readers find literary communities online.
All submissions accepted prior to July 1, 2016, are not affected by this transition. They will appear as scheduled in our final bi-annual print editions, issue 20 on October 1, 2016 or issue 21 on April 1, 2017.
Submissions accepted after July 1, 2016 will appear in our online journal. June 2017 will mark LAR’s online celebratory launch month, wherein we will release one new piece of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, translation, or book review each day for thirty days. Following this month-long launch, LAR will transition to publishing approximately three pieces each week.
In addition to its new weekly online journal, LAR will publish a printed and bound book as an annual best-of edition, to premier each year in spring at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference. This for-purchase edition will include only the very best: all award winning pieces from the LAR bi-annual literary awards series, highlights from the online journal, and new pieces collected by powerhouse name guest editors you will not want to miss.
The values of The Los Angeles Review remain intact and we hope that this transition will embolden our ability to champion writers, both established and emerging, who bring out the best in creative literature.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Los Angeles Review
