The Stonecoast Review | A Literary Arts Journal

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.”

The Stonecoast Review | Issue No. 7


December 8th UPDATE:

Issue #7 is now available for purchase on Amazon! Please pick up a copy today. Every issue we sell goes directly to support our organization, which is run entirely by volunteers.

Individual works from Issue #7 can still be found for free on the Publications page, and you can learn more about our editors on the Stonecoast Team page.

We’d like to thank everyone who submitted their work for Issue #8, which is still on target for release on December 18th. We received over 800 submissions during this period (a new record for Stonecoast Review!), including over 450 fiction pieces and nearly 1000 individual poems.

If your work wasn’t selected, and you intend on submitting to Issue #9 (we will open for submissions again in early February), please read through our selections to get an idea of the caliber of writing we’re looking for. As usual, we will have no limits on genre. Our staff members are all students and alumni of the Stonecoast MFA program, and we love all kinds of stories and poems—including science fiction, fantasy, and anything genre-breaking or especially weird. Trust us, you’ll know what we mean when you see Issue #8!

A special thanks goes out to all our first readers and editors these past few months. We will continue updating the Spotlight feature to showcase some of our hardest-working staff members, but we appreciate everyone who’s had a hand in assembling this issue. It takes many minds and many hours to put together a quality literary journal. We couldn’t have done it without you.

With warm regards,

Peter Adrian Behravesh
