Kentucky Review, founded 2014, is based in Lexington, Kentucky. In our first year the Review published poetry only but in 2015 began publishing flash fiction as well. We do not offer subscriptions to our readers. We publish online but also in a yearly print edition that may be purchased here or through retail sources such as Amazon. Our first print issue appeared in January 2015 and contained the poems we posted online in 2014.
We cannot pay contributors at this time. However, we offer a very deep discount on the printed edition to our authors. For guidelines, click on the Submit option above.
