Tagline: The literary quarterly of Georgia Perimeter College
About: “The Chattahoochee Review is a nationally recognized literary magazine sponsored by Georgia Perimeter College. Our purpose, a tradition begun twenty-seven years ago, is to publish original writing of literary merit. Each quarter, we publish the best in creative writing, essays, fiction, literary criticisms; everything you’ve come to expect from Atlanta’s oldest literary magazine.
The Chattahoochee Review is also a cultural organization whose purpose is to build and maintain a literary community in Georgia and the Southeast. However, having grown beyond its past role as more of a Southern literary magazine, The Chattahoochee Review has established a wider, more diverse audience.”
Analysis: While The Chattahoochee Review has a reputation as a Southern Lit magazine, it has gained national recognition and readership, steadily broadening its reach. The Chattahoochee blog, titled “Pass the Hooch,” covers “behind the scenes stuff about editing, publishing, writing, and books.” It’s a different experience to have a window into what the editor writes about his work (and life).
Chattahoochee publishes themes that “impact the whole person: heart, mind, intuition, and imagination.” It publishes a good amount of “memoiristic narrative,” though it is open to just about anything.
