Antioch Review celebrates 70 years of continuous publication

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio – October 25, 2011 – A special 400+ page edition of the Antioch Review is now available. The issue celebrates the literary journal’s 70th year of existence and features some of the best work published by the Review in the last decade.

Founded in 1941 by a group of Antioch College faculty who sought to establish a political forum from which the voice of liberalism could be heard, the Antioch Review is one of the oldest, continuously publishing literary magazines in America. Today, moving beyond the social and political agenda of its founding editors, the journal publishes fiction, essays, and poetry from emerging and established authors.

The 70th anniversary issue includes Pushcart prize winners, National Magazine Award finalists, selections included in Best American Mystery and Best of the West anthologies, essays by three Antiochians and work by the journal’s advisory board members. The issue is available for purchase ($15) at http://antiochcollege.org/antioch_review/current_issue and in more than 400 bookstores around the country.

Robert Fogarty, editor since 1977, is proud of the Review’s reputation.

“Librarians from Delhi to Dresden know us, writers and critics read us, and two generations of readers remember the Review for a particular article, story, or poem that caught their imagination,” he said.

Fogarty reports that an electronic edition of the Review should be available sometime next year.
