I'm sorry to announce that the next issue of Kentucky Review will be our last. If you have been accepted, your work will appear in the print edition for 2016 (to be published shortly after the new year). We are not open to submissions, but we are reading and selecting submissions already under consideration for the final issue. If you work is pending with us, you will receive a response soon. Our website will be taken down after January 1.

Comments on Poems and Stories Turned Off

Written by

I regret that spammers have forced us to disallow comments on this website. Even with the captcha feature turned on, real people spammers have been posting comments on poems and flash fiction pieces in order to promote their own goods. Enough already.

You can still share the work on this website by clicking on one of the social media buttons found at the bottom of every page.

Website Redesign

Written by

We made a few changes to the design of the website, most notably the organization/navigation of poetry and flash fiction. The bio page of any author shows the titles published in the issue as links shown above the bio (see "Click a title to read"). The poems and stories are embedded into the bio page so that you won't have to wait for the pages to load.


Kentucky Review ( and its parent organization, FutureCycle Press (, seek an assistant editor, one who loves poetry and has at least basic skills in updating web pages. Other desired skills include proficiency in internet communications, the English language, and copy editing/writing. Should we not find the Da Vinci of our dreams, we will consider bringing on more than one editor, each of whom has a least some of the skills we need.

All our staff from top to bottom are volunteers for a not-for-profit organization. We can pay you only with knowledge, offering the chance to learn the publishing industry from editors who have produced and edited magazines and books since the early 1970s. We are located in Lexington, Kentucky, but geography is no obstacle.

If you wish to apply, please email Robert S. King, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , and express your interest, availability, and skill set.
